The O-1 visa is a temporary work permit for those with extraordinary talents or skills. It's an easy visa to get, but only if the job is set up ahead of time and the person doing the job has special skills that the position needs.

The O-1 visa first appeared in 1990. Special status for exceptional immigrants had been around since 1965, but it was still a slow process. The O-1 gets around some of that by being a temporary work visa, and visa holders can still petition for a permanent green card while they work in the U.S.
