Have you ever watched the “Charlie Bit Me” video on YouTube?

For those of us who have watched the Charlie Bit Me video on YouTube, it’s hard to believe it was posted 14 years ago. Where did that time go?

The video has been viewed more than 880 million times, and has made the British family that posted it millionaires. The video recently sold for $761,000 as a non-refundable token. (If you want to know what that means, Google it. It’s too complicated to explain here.) Although it was first reported it would soon disappear from YouTube as part of that sale, the latest news is that it will stay.

The video itself is wonderful. It could not have been scripted better. For such a moment to happen is rare, but to have a video camera rolling at the same time … well, that’s about as good as good fortune gets.

So, did you watch this piece of internet history? We’re just curious. If you did not (or want to see it again), we’ll show you where to see it after you vote.

Seen the meme, but not the video and none of the memes were about Charlie…
Finally saw the video when I read about this NFT being sold. Talk about a fool and their money…

Pat Gray just played this video on his Blaze TV show. So now I’ve seen it twice in a week! Pat said these kids are now about 10 years older, and he showed their current photo, on the same chair, in the same pose as the babies photo here.

There’s another cute kid vid of a 4-year-old in the kitchen with his mom, calling to her “Linda! Linda! Listen to me!” I’ll have to find that one again…..

And another one of a little curly blonde girl, maybe 3 years old, on a play telephone, chatting up her imaginary friend on the other end of the line. Too cute!

Some videos can really get you laughing. Love that one and the now quite ancient “Numa Numa” one. There’s also a classic one which shows a cute kid coming out of dental anesthesia.

It’s not a “non-refundable token”, it’s an NFT – “non fungible token”

A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files.

In other words, crypto money?

I had but had to watch it just now to be sure. Reading the article that accompanied it I was surprised that someone paid about $750,000 as an NFT. Maybe somebody can explain it to me but I just don’t get that.

Well now you are missing that time you spent watching it, never to be recovered. That will teach you. :-/

Me neither, John. Not only that, I don’t get what the big deal is, or why anyone would pay any money for it. Looks like I worked all my life when I could have made a goofy video of kids being kids – and got filthy rich. I guess it was one of those “Y”s I came to in my life, and I took the wrong turn. 😛

I also didn’t know you had to pay to watch it.
