Fred — much less the appeal of Fred — is tough to explain. The basis of a massively popular YouTube channel, Fred's videos are the product of Nebraska teenager Lucas Cruikshank, who digitally alters his voice to pretend to be a 6-year-old using his mom's video camera on the sly. That only begins to explain the weirdness, but something about the idea is sticky: Fred's getting his own feature film in 2010.
