Fourteen years ago the “Charlie Bit My Finger” YouTube video was a global sensation that’s something that many will remember for the rest of their lives. On Friday, the owners announced that it’s being removed from the site and being sold as an NFT.

Harry and Charlie Davies-Carr are now 17-years-old and 15-years-old and ready to move onto the next chapter with this famous video. It’s received over 880 million views over nearly two decades and now, one individual will have the chance to own it forever.

NFT stands for “non-fungible token” and is a “digital asset that represents real-world objects,” according to Forbes.

"The beloved clip has become a household name and holds a special place in the hearts of many," reads a line from the CharlieBitMe NFT website. "Now, the iconic video will be removed from YouTube and one person will have the opportunity to own it in its new form as a 1/1 NFT, memorializing them in internet history forever. The NFT winner will also get the opportunity to create their own parody of the video featuring the original stars, Harry and Charlie."

For those interested in purchasing the iconic video, they can start bidding on May 22. The amount that it’ll start at hasn’t been released yet, nor has the bidding deadline.

The last chance to watch the video will be May 23, 2021.
