    For those who haven't yet seen/heard/read of this story a homeless man by the name of Ted Williams, he gained sudden fame as a result of his voice being recorded and put up on youtube.

    To summarise this I'll quote a comment seen on youtube and link you to a vid if you want the full story:

    I've been reading about him on Twitter this week. Internet success story if ever there was one.

    I saw this yesterday. It's very nice to know people can become successful after such hardships.

    Also, wtf. The video was taken down for copyright?

    If this is true, it really is a big WIN for the internet.
    But it all went so fast, I mean, a house?! Commercials after 40 hours?!
    Maybe it's fake, I sure don't hope so though.
