How Much Money Did ‘Charlie Bit My Finger’ Make On Youtube?

The iconic Charlie bit my finger video is going up for sale as Youtube prepares to delete the viral video forever.

The home movie which went viral has racked up more than 850 million views since its release in 2007. And the two brothers were even good enough to do a reenactment 10 years later.

It's being auctioned off as a NFT later this month before being deleted from the internet forever.

How much money did 'Charlie bit my finger' make?

On it's ten-year anniversary, the viral video had amassed nearly 850 million views and had also earned the two toddlers a pretty penny.

In 2017, The Mirror reported that the viral video made around £1 million ($1.3 million) in royalties. We can estimate that amount to be much higher four years on.

What is 'Charlie bit my finger' about?

So what exactly does the world's most viewed viral video entail?

Two toddlers, Harry (aged three) and Charlie (aged one), were sitting together on the family sofa, while their dad, Howard Davies-Carr, started filming in hope of capturing a cute moment between his two sons.

But what happened next launched his sons into fame overnight. Baby Charlie bites his big brother's finger, like any teething baby would if a finger went into their mouth, but Harry's reaction was priceless:

"Ouch Charlie! Ouchhhhh! That really hurt! Charlie," said Harry. To which Charlie just sniggers at his brother's pain.

'Charlie bit my finger' NFT auction

The Davis-Carr family, plan to mark its 14th anniversary and said in a statement that whoever wins the auction will be the sole owner of the clip as well as being offered the chance to recreate the video with the original stars.

The family wrote: "Seen by over 880 million people, Charlie Bit My Finger is the most-viewed viral video of all time.

"The beloved clip has become a household name and holds a special place in the hearts of many.

"Now, the iconic video will be removed from YouTube and one person will have the opportunity to own it in its new form as a 1/1 NFT, memorializing them in internet history forever.

"The NFT winner will also get the opportunity to create their own parody of the video featuring the original stars, Harry and Charlie."
