Internet Fame

I wonder which "normal" person has parlayed their Internet fame (or infamy) into the most cold, hard cash? I know that poor "Star Wars Kid" nearly had a nervous breakdown. At the other end of the spectrum, the "Nintendo 64 Kid" got a national TV commercial from BMW.

If you caught The Simpsons Sunday night, they parodied the famous YouTube clip "Noah takes a photo of himself every day for 6 years." I wonder how much coin he got? I can already confirm that a dear acquaintance of mine ran over to iTunes and purchased the moody piano soundtrack immediately after seeing it.
