Sweet Brown Ain't Got No Time for Bronchitis

An Oklahoma City apartment building caught fire over the weekend, and KFOR News Channel 4 was there to cover the story. Then, like a gift from the Lord of Viral Videos himself, Sweet Brown was discovered.

Sweet Brown said, “Well, I woke up to get me a cold pop and then I thought somebody was barbecuing. I said, ‘Oh Lord Jesus, it’s a fire.’ Then I ran out, I didn’t grab no shoes or nothing, Jesus. I ran for my life and then the smoke got me, I got bronchitis! Ain’t nobody got time for that.” (Via)

I love everything about the clip below — the name “Sweet Brown,” Sweet Brown’s preacher speak, the guy in the background crossing the camera three times, the way it seems someone named Jesus is interviewing Sweet Brown, the in-studio anchor doing her best not to laugh — with one exception. It’s “soda,” not “pop,” people. If Rick Santorum said that if elected President, he’d force everyone to say “soda,” he’d have my vote.
