Charlie Bit My Finger Brothers Recreate Video 13 Years Later
The two kids who coined the phrase 'Charlie Bit My Finger' have recreated their iconic line 13 years after their original video went viral.
Harry Davies-Carr (who was aged three at the time) and Charlie Davies-Carr (aged one) were innocently sitting in their UK home when their parents thought it would be neat to film them playing around.
Harry giggled as his younger brother bit his finger. The then-three-year-old chucked his finger back into Charlie's mouth and Charlie, being one and all, decided to chomp down a little harder.
The young boy shouted his iconic line and the rest is history.
The video has since racked up an impressive 875 million views on YouTube since it was uploaded in 2007.

The boys' mum Shelley Davies-Carr, couldn't believe how quickly their tiny home video went around the world.
"Susan Boyle has never had the hits we have had," she told The Times. "The video got on to a college networking site in the U.S. and from there it went viral. I think the British accents have helped make it so globally viewed."
Charlie and Harry's parents have reportedly made tens of thousands of pounds from the video due to advertising and sponsorship deals. They were also able to get some merchandise of the infamous moment out into the world, which would have blagged them more moolah.
The Davies-Carrs were able to put that money into buying a new house. Imagine a little home video you shot having that much of an impact.
Their dad thought it was a bittersweet thing as the instant viral fame made him worried for the boys' future. However, he did his best to ensure they achieved things that wouldn't make them think it was their only worthwhile achievement.
Howard Davies-Carr told ABC News: "There are an awful lot of unscrupulous people out there who will try and take advantage of people that don't understand what they have."
"When the boys get to 18, I'd like them to think back and think, 'O.K., I've got something in my life which is more than just what I was when I did the 'Charlie Bit Me' video."
