YouTube sensation and Tennessee gubernatorial candidate Basil Marceaux has made it to late-night TV.

The candidate, who gained national notoriety for his rambling appearance on a Tennessee television station, will appear Monday night on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” which airs at midnight eastern time.

“I’m more concerned about my message,” Marceaux told the Chattanooga Times Free-Press from his room provided by ABC at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, confirming his appearance. “So if they make fun of me and all that stuff, it’ll be worth it.”
