Annoying Orange Seeks to Irritate a Wider Audience via Television

Dane Boedigheimer, creator of the Annoying Orange online video series, already makes ad revenue probably in the thousands of dollars a month and, according to the Wall Street Journal, has an agent seeking a deal for a TV show starring his irritating fruit character. Using the superimposed human mouth and eyes technique that Conan O'Brien made popular on Late Night, the series has been viewed some 108 million times on YouTube and has half a million Facebook fans. The most popular video in the series, "Annoying Orange Wazzup," (above) has been seen 11 million since it was first posted in January. Groan.
