Charlie Bit My Finger YouTube Stars Are All Grown Up — And They Think It’s a “Bit Odd” Over 800 Million People Watched Their Video

Ow! "Charlie Bit My Finger" brothers, Charlie and Harry, are all grown up — and they think it’s odd that over 800 million people have watched their video.


“It makes me laugh,” Harry, now 11, told BBC Newsround when asked how he feels watching the famous YouTube clip, which after being posted in 2007 has become one of the most-watched videos on YouTube ever.

When asked if they feel embarrassed at all, Charlie, now 9, tells the camera: “No. I think it’s a bit odd that those people have watched it.” 

“My dad put it on YouTube so my godfather could see it in America” the 9-year-old explained as to how their clip made its way onto the Internet.

Since taking off eight years ago, the boys have appeared in ads and their parents have made money through sponsorship deals.
