One of YouTube’s earliest viral videos is set to be removed from the platform after being sold as an non-fungible token (NFT). Charlie Bit My Finger was first uploaded to the video streaming site in 2007, and has since racked up a whopping 885 million views.

 

The video, which features baby Charlie Davies-Carr biting his brother Harry's finger, was put up for auction as an NFT by the family on 24 May and landed a final offer of $760,999.

 

After an intense bidding war, anonymous user “3fmusic” now has the official rights to the famous video, as well as an opportunity to create a parody of the original with the Davies-Carr brothers.
