The famous 56-second-long “Charlie Bit my Finger” viral video that was first uploaded to YouTube back in May 2007 will be removed forever in just a couple of days and be auctioned off. It featured Harry Davies-Carr (who was aged three) and Charlie Davies-Carr (aged one), two brothers from the United Kingdom. The video will be sold as an NFT, which basically means that the original version of the video is going to be sold as if it were an original art piece. Read more for a video showing the brothers now and additional information.
This auction may help the boys, now 17 and 15, as they will soon enter “adulthood and embarking on the next chapter of their lives,” according to the family. The video was filmed by the boys’ father, Howard, and then uploaded to YouTube because the file was too large to email their godparents in America.
