From Encyclopedia Dramatica
|ALERT: THIS IS A FORCED MEME|
| Charlie Bit Me - Again! will be posted by the same|
unfunny newfag until you like it.
Before we get any further into the article, let’s just get this out of the way:
|Description||Insanely over-linked YouTube video of two boys.|
|Claim to lulz||105 million fucking hits? You got to be kidding me!|
|Website||HDCYT's YouTube channel|
That's right, Charlie and his chompers. The meme video Charlie bit my finger – again! is one of the most viral videos the world has ever known and for some reason, this idiotic blend of cute kids, torturous pain, and broken childish English has the internet longevity to still claim 3rd place on YouTube's most viewed videos of all time, despite the fact that it has been around for over two years.
Harry: Haha, Charlie, Charlie bit me.
Harry: Hahah, ohohoh. Ouch. Ouch! Ouch Charlie! OUUUUUUUUUUUUCHHHHHHHHH! Char-lee, that really hurts!
Charlie: Hehehe, hahahaha.
Harry: Hmmm Charlie bit me.
Harry: And that really hurt, and it's still hurting.
—Some bastard on Fazed.
Since May 22, 2007 people have been viewing this video and giggling their idiotic heads off. The video is quite funny the first time around, but anytime something gets over 100 million hits on YouTube, that means that several thousand morons are viewing the video over and over again, and then sending the link out to all of their AOL chat buddies, IRC channels, Email lists, and forums. Then, shockingly, those morons do the same thing over and over again. We get it! It was funny the first time. Thanks for sharing! Look, if this video pops up in my inbox folder one more time, I am gonna stab some people in the fucking windpipe and then watch them as they slowly fade out of existence…
—This comment post is from somebody 2 years after the fact. Like we need a play-by-play.
While it is sometimes possible to miss a meme and then laugh at it sometime later, the Charlie Bit My Finger – Again! Video is so interwoven into the tapestry of the internet, only a complete retard, your noob grandmother, or your dad, who just bought a PC for the first time and is now linking it, could possibly have missed it the first sixteen thousand times it was linked. About the only way a person could have missed this video is if they were in a coma in a hospital at the bottom of the ocean on Saturn.
—Agreed, but why are you commenting on it 2 years later?
The YouTube page says that the video it was made on March 19, 2007, and uploaded on May 22. The Buckinghamshire, England family put the video on YouTube so that relatives in Colorado and California could see just how retarded the boys were. The video then sunk into obscurity and remained undiscovered until November 22nd, 2007 when it was featured on Collegehumor. According to Howard, the boys father, the video had reached 1 million views by the end of 2007. As of July 2009, it is the 3rd most watched video on YouTube and tops all other videos in the UK.
Charlie, who was one and Harry, who was three at the time of the video have made several other videos since their initial fame, but none of these clips have come close to the page views and commentary of the original. They have a blog and facebook account, both managed by their father Howard. CollegeHumor inducted Charlie Bit Me - Again! into their Web Celeb Hall of Fame in November 2007.

—HDCYT, laying down the law.
As with most popular memes, you are going to get a lot of negative feedback from the angst-ridden basement dwelling crowd. Sure, the video is overplayed and over-hyped to the point of making most normal human beings want to commit suicide with a farm implement, but that is absolutely no reason to post racist or abusive comments on the YouTube comment section...or is it?
HDCYT also has this little tidbit for those who wish to mock the rest of the internet:
—FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, LEAVE MY KIDS ALONE!
This Has Got to be a Setup
—Howard fends off the naysayers.
If your video is popular on Youtube, you just know that there are going to be people screaming that it is fake, staged, or somehow manipulated into being something other than true. Things are no different with the Charlie Bit My Finger - Again! video. Howard, the boys father often finds himself having to defend the honor of the video and has even made a FAQ video to explain how this video has become so popular.
Just like other hugely popular memes, the Charlie Bit My Finger – Again! Video has spawned its fair share of mock ups and reproductions by an assorted cast of misfits, faggots, dipshits, and hipsters all aiming to cash in on the obsessive craze.
