Watch Ted Williams: From Homeless to 'Today' Show in 48 Hours … and Now He's Hawking Mac and Cheese on National TV!

Posted Thu, January 6, 2011 2:44pm EDT

If you haven’t seen (or heard) this guy, his voice, and his uplifting story, you’re either a hermit or on hospital-grade sedatives.

So here’s the deal: Homeless man with amazingly deep, caramel-smooth, Nat King Cole-quality voice gets caught on tape, video uploads to YouTube, explodes, and just 48 hours later — he’s on the ‘Today’ Show with Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira.

Ted Williams became one of the most random insta-celebrities ever — and a more inspiring one that the little dude who rapped with 50 Cent or Chocolate Rain guy.

Already, he’s been offered a job by the Cleveland Cavaliers, by Kraft (to hawk macaroni and cheese) , and multiple other sources.

Update:

The Ted Williams success train keeps on rolling: He was not only hired by MSNBC to do voiceover work for their Lean Forward campaign, but he was also reunited with his mother. Will we ever get enough of this guy?
