Ted Williams, better known as the “the homeless man with the golden voice”, became a voice sensation over night. Williams was discovered by a news crew on the side of a road in Columbus, Ohio. Apparently Mr. Williams has been through a few ups and downs during 2011. Williams has a beautiful voice, and he has been offered opportunities in TV and radio to put his talent to use. According to news source, the sudden fame and attention also brought Ted Williams some unwelcomed side effects. Apparently the emotional stress pushed Mr. Williams back into drinking. According to the Allaccess.com, in mid 2011 Mr. Williams, while intoxicated, signed a TV contract with terms not very beneficial to him (story here). Ted Williams has filed a lawsuit against parties involved in the contract. Also during the early part of 2011 he did have was booked by L.A. police after miss behaving due to excessive alcohol use.

#2 – The Talking Twin Baby Brothers
With nearly 60 million hits on the YouTube, these twins are now semi-celebrities. Apparently there are 2 different videos of the twins engaged in what appears to be serious back and forth baby talk!

Apparently the YouTube Partner Program injects ads into videos that have very high number of views, and then it shares revenue from those ads with the content creator.
