According to The Wall Street Journal, Annoying Orange, a web series from Dane Boedigheimer is a BIG, BIG hit.

Mr. Boedigheimer, a North Dakota native who moved to California to work in film, now collects ad revenue, sells T-shirts and has an agent exploring spinoffs, all for a character that didn’t exist until October.
He was able to turn a talking orange into a pop-culture force in six months because “the Internet today is like TV was in the 1950s–it’s a new technology that changes the way we view culture,” says Ben Huh, founder of Cheezburger Network, which runs Internet sites.
