Classic Web Video

One of the most popular viral videos on the web, Charlie Bit My Finger has more than 275 million views as of January, 2011. The short video was originally uploaded by the boy’s father so their relatives in the US could see the boys.

“The clip only went up as I wanted to share it with the boys’ godfather. I was naive about the whole YouTube thing. It became viral and once that happened there was nothing I could do. People have sent lovely comments and messages and I now upload a new video of the boys every six weeks.”[2]
