According to Variety, the iconic 14-year-old video has officially been deleted, and sold by the U.K’s Davies-Carr family (the family who made the video) for $760,999.
The reason they’re able to sell for this much is because it’s an NFT (non-fungible-token), which exploded on the scene this year as a way for iconic video and meme creators to sell their stuff as collectibles.
The video was auctioned off, and bought by somebody with the username “3fmusic.” According to the company’s Twitter, 3FMusic is one the “most popular and well equipped” music studios in the Middle East.
So…. does this mean we’re gonna be hearing a “Charlie Bit My Finger” dubstep remix at clubs soon? God, I hope not, but anyways…
If you’ve somehow been living under a rock for the past 14 years, the video is about a young boy holding his baby brother Charlie, and he puts his finger in Charlie’s mouth, and he bites it. The brother pitches a fit, then proceeds to keep doing it.
