If he accepts, Hung will be in good company, the Koch Entertainment stable of talent includes Ringo Starr, Montell Jordan, and the Bangles. The deal reportedly includes a music video that will air on Fuse.

Heh... I saw that on CNN.

Does this guy not realize that he's "popular" because everyone is making fun of him? He's not a star, he's a freakshow attraction.

I think a lot of people like him not for his suckyness, which he has in abundance, but rather his unflappable and earnest attitude. That in coordination with his physical appearance makes for comedy GOLD!!!!

I think he knows it, and is cashing in on it. I really do think that he went on American Idol intending to screw up, in hopes of using the momentary fame to boost himself into the spotlight.

You really think he had it planned out that well?

LOL, I saw that guy in a clip somebody posted at a forum. It was hilarious.

The best part is where he says 'You know, I didn't receive any professionel training at all'. If he hadn't said that I would never have known.

Who the heck is this William Hung guy? Is he one of those reality TV losers who sucked at whatever he did and is cashing in now?

I don't know what's worse, this guy or the fact that people know who he is.

To quote Marx: "I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book."

I know who he is because of the Internet, not the idiot box. I'd post the link, but the only one I know of is blocked at work.

Actually, the internet makes the computer and "idiot-box" too. Its just that you have more control over the idiocy being spewed :uhhuh:.

True, I can avoid "reality" shows on the Internet, but I can't on television.

No 'off' button on the TV, eh :D
Not when you live in a small-*** barracks room with 2 other roommates and one does nothing but stare at. Seriously, he spends more time in front of the tv than I do in front of a computer.

People may laugh at him, but he has just made more money than most of the other people who have ever tried out for American Idol ever will by their musical talent.

Considering once you start going below 3rd or 4th place, you not only lose the record deal chances, but also really any chance at fame, he in reality out performed all but 2 or 3 contestants.

Kudos to him.
