Ben Relles is the founder and producer of Barely Political, a spoof on politics which has hit it big with the Obama Girl  sensation. This clip has had nearly 9 million views on YouTube.  Looks like Obama’s progress towards the Presidential nomination puts Ben on a winning ticket.

Earlier this year, Relles’s company was acquired by NextNewNetworks, a company that is assembling and launching a number of serialized online video shows.

I interviewed Ben earlier this week at the Streaming Media East conference in Manhattan.
