About

The Annoying Orange is an american comedy web series created by Dane Boedingheimer for his own company Gagfilms in 2009 starring an anthropomorphic orange annoying other fruits, vegetables and other objects that appear in the kitchen.

Origin

Before the series, Boedingheimer created many talking food videos with Adobe After Effects and released them on his site and another website named JibJab. The video down below is one of his first talking food videos made in 2006 starring Theresa Barket bringing out a carton of eggs to make fried egg.

After then, he released on his YouTube Channel daneboe on the October 9, 2009 the first Annoying Orange video starring the main character Orange annoying an Apple.

The video has gained over 100’000’000 views (2012). Later, many viewers asked for more videos with the orange but it was only meantto be the only Annoying Orange video. After 4 other videos starring the orange, Boedingheimer created another YouTube account called realannoyingorange on the January 11, 2010. The video down below is the first video created on the YouTube channel.

Main Characters

I say confirm it.

I find annoying orange completely unfunny and bizarre (much like Fred, and I am bewildered that both are considered popular). I hate both with a passion; and logically, the more you hate something, the stronger it gets.

Still, Its definitely note worthy on a site that records internet based phenomenons, so it definitely deserves some kind of entry. Its not a meme, subculture or event, and definitely not a person, but whatever it is, it deserves SOME kind of note.

This really deserves confirmation.
The videos are everywhere, it doesn’t take much browsing on youtube to find at least 3 videos/parody videos all from different people.
The fact that you’ve all heard of it rather confirms the fact that it’s a meme. Just because you don’t like it doesn’t make it not a meme, in fact if you are annoyed at how much you run into it then that’s kind of the definition of a meme in the first place.
