“Charlie Bit My Finger” Still A Huge YouTube Hit!
If you haven't seen this video yet, you either live under a rock, don't care about having a computer, or it is too beneath you to watch it (don't give me that baloney - they all say that!). According to Newser.com, the "Charlie Bit My Finger" clip has been viewed more than 400 million times, and it's still growing!
The video, which depicts a little boy biting his brother's finger and their priceless reactions, has gotten an equally priceless reaction in the parents' wallets.
According to a New York Times article, a profit sharing agreement between YouTube and the family has earned them $160,000. I'm now biting my own finger out of jealousy.
Okay, rock dwellers. In case you missed it -
There have been many other versions of this video on YouTube as well, such as the "Charlie Bit Me Remix". I wish I knew who did this so I could credit them- it's brilliant!
I guess they're planning a series of children's books as well. I can't wait til the movie version is released. Maybe they can try one with adult actors! Gee- who can play Charlie? NO! NOT CHARLIE SHEEN!- OH NOOOOOOOOO!
