Wenatchee, Wash.-based Stemilt Growers Inc.’s new characters Clem and Milty are two growers with way too much time — and the Internet — on their hands.

When the two attempt to make their own “virus” videos based on already famous ones, they create orchard mayhem.

The characters are fictional growers created by Howell at the Moon Productions, also based in Wenatchee, in videos the group filmed in a Stemilt Hill orchard. Clem and Milty are played by local actors. Spoofed videos include the “Diet Coke and Mentos Experiment” and “Star Wars Kid,” to the misfortune of, more often, Clem.

“Clem and Milty are fun characters that have a tough time successfully recreating these videos, many of which have become sensations on YouTube,” Roger Pepperl, Stemilt marketing director, said in a news release. “We teamed up with Howell at the Moon to create these videos in hopes of entertaining people online, as well as educating them that Washington produces the best apples in the world.”

Five videos will be on YouTube, Stemilt’s blog and the Facebook pages for Clem, Milty and Stemilt starting Sept. 1, with plans to film and release more.
