"Hey, it's Fred!"

... portrayal of a lonely 6-year-old with anger management issues and an alcoholic mom

Yet another star borne from YouTube, Fred has become widely popular, especially for 13- to 17-year-old girls. But yet, a higher percentage of 35- to 44-year-olds in his audience than 18- to 24-year-olds. Fred currently tops all viewer subscriptions with over 67K regular listeners.

FROM BusinessWeek:
If you have kids, you probably know Fred, most likely because you banned your child from watching him. Not that Fred is offensive. Quite the contrary: He’s a bundle of G-rated joy for the tween set. But Fred is annoying. He prances about doing inane things while screaming, and the film is sped up to give the character a hyperactive squeal. Adults don’t get it, kids can’t get enough of it.
