This guy was added on You Tube in April, and this one video has had about 11 million hits.........the most anyone has ever achieved.  He did it as a lark, an experiment, and has absolutely knocked the Internet on its ear! 

"CHOCOLATE RAIN"

Tay's success (not his original name) is a great example of the fresh ingenuity of Star Kids, coupled with New World Technology and freedom being brought to artists through vehicles such as You Tube.  Tay lives in Minneapolis, and is a grad student (Doctoral Candidate) in American Studies (with an emphasis on the relationship between performance and social change).  The man is off-beat, brilliant......with a kick-ass unusual voice, which has already been compared to James Earl Jones and Barry White.  (Yes, it's his real voice!)
 
Dr. Pepper and MacDonald's have already picked him up as a spokes person and the original Video was redone recently.  It's now called CHERRY CHOCOLATE RAIN, and you can see the difference that some backup money adds!  Better or not?  You decide:

Chocolate Rain

By Tay Zonday.

Chocolate Rain
Some stay dry and others feel the pain
Chocolate Rain
A baby born will die before the sin

Chocolate Rain
The school books say it can't be here again
Chocolate Rain
The prisons make you wonder where it went

Chocolate Rain
Build a tent and say the world is dry
Chocolate Rain
Zoom the camera out and see the lie

Chocolate Rain
Forecast to be falling yesterday
Chocolate Rain
Only in the past is what they say

Chocolate Rain
Raised your neighborhood insurance rates
Chocolate Rain
Makes us happy 'livin in a gate

Chocolate Rain
Made me cross the street the other day
Chocolate Rain
Made you turn your head the other way

(Chorus)
Chocolate Rain
History quickly crashing through your veins
Chocolate Rain
Using you to fall back down again
[Repeat]

Chocolate Rain
Seldom mentioned on the radio
Chocolate Rain
Its the fear your leaders call control

Chocolate Rain
Worse than swearing worse than calling names
Chocolate Rain
Say it publicly and you're insane

Chocolate Rain
No one wants to hear about it now
Chocolate Rain
Wish real hard it goes away somehow

Chocolate Rain
Makes the best of friends begin to fight
Chocolate Rain
But did they know each other in the light?

Chocolate Rain
Every February washed away
Chocolate Rain
Stays behind as colors celebrate

Chocolate Rain
The same crime has a higher price to pay
chocolate Rain
The judge and jury swear it's not the face

(Chorus)

Chocolate Rain
Dirty secrets of economy
Chocolate Rain
Turns that body into GDP

Chocolate Rain
The bell curve blames the baby's DNA
Chocolate Rain
But test scores are how much the parents make

Chocolate Rain
'Flippin cars in France the other night
Chocolate Rain
Cleans the sewers out beneath Mumbai

Chocolate Rain
'Cross the world and back its all the same
Chocolate Rain
Angels cry and shake their heads in shame

Chocolate Rain
Lifts the ark of paradise in sin
Chocolate Rain
Which part do you think you're 'livin in?

Chocolate Rain
More than 'marchin more than passing law
Chocolate Rain
Remake how we got to where we are
