familiar with the title? yes, charlie bit me is the most viewed video of all time in youtube. it is currently ranked no 1 in youtube with over 140 millions views. furthermore, there are hundreds of duplicate versions (re-upload the same video by others) & cover/spoof versions (remake the video by others acting to be them). that's not all! there are even song versions about charlie bit me like the remix version & auto-tuned version of songs! there are more & more new composition for charlie bit me being added now & then. have you seen the video? what do you think about this charlie bit me fever? which version do you love the most? besides the original version, this is the auto-tuned version that i love: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8xAeBOAC8U

I LOVE the "Charlie Bit Me" video. Those are the two cutest kids! And the accent helps with the adorableness. When that baby laughs after biting his big brother...omg! What a sense of humor on such a little one lol I've only seen the original video, haven't watched any of the recuts or remixes...but maybe I'll check them out if they are any good :) Have you seen the evil eye baby? That one is really funny and cute too! It also has some funny remixes. Original http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5ALIL7T764 Remix http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hReROJQpSow&feature=related

thanks LilyoftheThorns for sharing the evil eye baby videos. i watched the original + 3 other remix videos. the original one is good enough because the remix/modification versions did not push it to another level. you should watch the auto-tuned version of charlie bit me. the link is on my discussion. it was really innovatively done & looks like harry is singing instead of talking.

hello victory, those two have grown up bit now and they have been interviewed so many times in a lot of shows in britain. i have watch the original and it's really pretty funny indeed. no matter how much i compare it to others, this one seems really shows a good sense of loving and humor between siblings

yeah, you are right, LetranKnight25. the elder brother (harry) really shows a good sense of loving. he is in pain but he did not lose his anger & hit his younger brother (charlie). you should watch the auto-tuned version (if you have not watched it). highly recommended!

I suppose this is a good video. Not my style though. I prefer seeing people attempting extreme sports and failing-miserably. Also, I am over the whole auto-tune deal. I feel as if I am back in 1993. I can see the appeal though. Humans are "hard-wired" to be drawn to children's faces.

you are a tough woman! so do you love to try on extreme sports? or you just love to watch others doing it & fail?

Yes, I've seen that video. The kids I babysat once showed it to me for the first time on Youtube. Since then I have heard about many of the spoofs and re-editing of the video, but i haven't seen them all. I thought it was kind of funny when I saw the original video. w

Hi olisaur: It's actually very commun that if there is a video everybody is following, at least there will be someone that will find interesting to copy the video just to gain more views to his/ her channel. That is part of the youtube world but at the same time i think it's not that bad because they make videos even more popular and that people who doesn't know that these video exist to watch them. Thanks for your answer. Have a nice day. -Alvaro.

yeah, there are so many spoof/impersonation/reedition versions, but the most worth noticing are the song versions especially the auto-tuned version that i promoted on the discussion. it's not done by me but i really appreciate all the works done to it.

Ohh this clip, me and my wife love this clip, this is really cute and funny. I think they are grown up now, anyway, when i saw that clip, it really made me laugh and it really really made my wife also laugh at the same time. Just can't express the fun that those two cute little kids gave the 140 million people, at least, in their own way, they remove the stress of millions. Have a great day!

Hi victorywp: I haven't viewed the video until now and well, i think it was not that funny as i was expecting this would be, i am sorry to say it but i don't understand the fever of the video. The kids are cute but it's not enough for me to explain why this is a viral video. Thanks for sharing this video with me. Nice discussion i think. Have a nice day. -Alvaro.

no worry my friend, starsailover. the fact that this video has been the most viewed video of all time in youtube does not mean that everyone should love it. i believe most of the number of views were from repeating viewers. i don't expect everyone to love it but i am just sharing it. so have a nice day!

what? you are not one of the contributors to the 150 millions views? i think i have viewed about one thousand times (including all versions) within these 2-3 years time. thank you for liking it. i like the auto-tuned version because they made it as if they are singing (but actually they are just talking!) tell you a secret, i have downloaded it to be my ringtone!

lol! yeah! actualy i am just new in the internet world coz in the last few years i am actually living in a far province here there's no internet line yet...hehe and now for more than a year i am enjoying the internet, i never cross with that video! haha maybe because whenever i am on you tube, i am just watching those music videos from selena and my other favorite artists...i don't actually have time browsing for other videos that's why i am thankful whenever someone recommends some videos to watch... wow! looks like you are really hooked with it! haha but anyway, i can't blame you for its really nice and cute and that auto tuned version is also great, yeah looks like they are singing...and know what? i think my husband just get hooked on it...coz just a while ago i hear him singing it...hahaha and i will not be surprised if he also make it as his ringtone!

The original version, what is the difference between the original the auto-tuned version. Let me see...

the main difference is that the original version is a plain talking but the auto-tuned version is a song. they made it seems like harry is singing instead of talking.

140 million views is a wow for me. Awesome.. Sometimes we can't predict which are the ones that a large number of people would love. I think many were curious in the beginning and they watch. Then, they tell their friends and family members and they go on to watch. After-which, there can be repetition watch again and the numbers rise up till millions. Amazing yeah..

this video has been around for 2-3 years which added up to about 150 million views (still adding). if you check how many people have commented on it, you would be surprised to see that there are about 270,000 comments & still adding every single minute.

yes, it supposed to be entertaining. but you should watch the original version first. then if you watch the auto-tuned version (which i have put the link), it will be much more entertaining. because they made it to look like as if they are singing but actually they are not.

LOL! I havent seen this video before. Though I think I might have but it would be on one of the interviews. Im just not sure. Anyway, I thought what could be so interesting that most people will just watch a short clip over and over again. Then I saw it myself, and I couldnt get enough of it! I just replayed and replayed. Harry was just too cute. His accent also adds to the cuteness and hilarity of the moment. Too bad they're "growed up" now. That makes room for new viral video funny baby videos to be number one.^_^

Yeah I also watched their first tv interview on Youtube. That time Jasper was not born yet. Browsing through the parents' videos, it seems that Jasper is also slightly older than toddler now. Great thing is that the funny moment has been immortalized by video and internet.

I've never heard of it and so have no clue what it is about. I don't do youtube, well sometimes I do but not very often...it eats up too much of my download allowance and my computer is too slow so it's a bit of a pain. Besides, I tend to shy away from something that everyone else seems a slave to.

yeah, those impersonators are not so nice. but the song versions are nice! because they made the song from their voices (which contains originality). you should try to watch those song versions especially the auto-tuned version.

Sorry, but I have to admit and I'm probably one of the strange ones. I don't watch a lot of stuff on Youtube. This one was a new one for me. When I saw the title I actually thought that maybe you were talking about being bit by a family pet or something. lol. Anyways, I guess all of the videos on there get to be a little much and frankly, it worries me.

i thought the title itself charlie bit me! should have rang a bell for everyone. but it seems like most of the mylotters have never heard or seen it before. that means the 150 millions views must have been largely contributed by repeating viewers.

I thought all the thing about Charlie had finished looong ago, but it seems that still some people are clinging into it. I disliked the video, and I got super tired of hearing my friends impersonating it once and over again.

yeah, i thought it supposed to have finished long ago too. but once a new version is out, people would search for the original & watch it again. i dislike impersonation versions, but somehow i am attracted to the song versions. the latest version is the auto-tuned version which has been a hit recently. it was innovatively done & is the best song version so far.

Ya. I have seen this video.It was uploaded by one of my friends on face-book, a popular social networking site. It was a cute video. I didn't know this fact that it was ranked number ONE in You-tube. Duplicate versions? They would automatically arise once something becomes a hit. I liked the original one.

Believe it or not I have not seen this video before now and I did enjoy it, it’s cute! I love Charlie’s smile to the camera after ‘the bite’. It is original how they put ‘Charlie bit me’ to music and it depicts the love between the young siblings I may look for the other versions now that I am familiar with it. I would imagine the original is the best; it usually is!I like this one, thanks for sharing it!
