Just ask Ted Williams. 24 hours after a video featuring him was posted on You Tube his life has changed in a dramatic way!
Ted Williams’ life has completely changed overnight — from panhandling on the streets of Columbus, Ohio just days ago, to appearing on the “Today” show Thursday to talk about becoming a YouTube sensation.
A video was filmed next to a Columbus freeway showing Williams asking for money with a handwritten sign. Columbus Dispatch web producer Doral Chenoweth discovered Williams had a voice perfect for radio — put it on the paper’s website — and the rest is internet history. Now the job offers have come pouring in. He appeared on “The Today Show” this morning.
Williams has been offered a job with the Cleveland Cavaliers and a house mortgage free.
