Meet Charles Ramsey: Cleveland dishwasher, unlikely hero, sudden Internet sensation.
Ramsey is the man seen in the WEWS-TV video
colorfully recounting how he helped save the three Ohio women from captivity
after they'd been missing for more than a decade.
The video has gone viral, his sound bites lauded online as classics:
"Bro, I knew something was wrong when a pretty little white girl ran into a black man’s arms. Something is wrong here."
"I heard screaming. I was eating my McDonald's. I went outside and saw this girl going nuts trying to get out of her house."
"You've got some big testicles to pull this off, bro, because we see this dude everyday. I mean everyday."
"There's nothing exciting about him. Well, until today."
Ramsey has even charmed Hollywood.
Actress Valerie Bertinelli Tweeted
: "I think I'm in love, Charles Ramsey. #Cleveland #Hero."
And comedian and actor Patton Oswalt Tweeted
: "Dear Charles Ramsey: I am not a little pretty white girl, but I totally want to run into your black arms. #hero."
And the McDonald's Corp. couldn't resist reaching out on Twitter
