'Charlie bit my finger' reaches 'half a billion' views on YouTube

London - Popular viral video 'Charlie bit my finger' has hit half a billion views on the Google-owned YouTube.

The video of a toddler biting his brother's finger and then smiling broadly is now the most popular video ever uploaded onto the website.

Titled 'Charlie Bit My Finger - Again,' the clip has made unlikely international stars of brothers Harry 5, and Charlie, 2, the Telegraph reports.

It has featured on television shows in the US and even sparked fan clubs for the boys in countries including Lebanon and Belize.
 
Parents Howard and Shelley Howard Davies-Carr, from Buckinghamshire, said that they had been overwhelmed by the popularity of the video, which they posted in March 2007.

The boys are shy about their new fame and get embarrassed when the clip is shown on television, according to their mother who now also has a third son, Jasper.

According to the paper, the first three pilot episodes titled "Biting News", "King of The Week" and "Charlie Bites...Toys" were produced by Viral Studios and video monetisation firm Rightster to showcase a selection of lighthearted viral videos from around the web.

The producers of the new films claim high speed mobile broadband together with the widespread adoption of smartphone and tablet devices has resulted in a dramatic shift to video consumption on the go with 73.5 per cent of all views in 2012 coming from these devices, compared to 45.2 per cent in 2011 and 22.4 per cent in 2010, the paper said.
