In the 56-second video, Harry and Charlie were seen sitting on a sofa. Charlie bites Harry’s finger, and he laughs and says, “Charlie bit my finger.” Seconds later, Harry again offered Charlie his finger, and the latter bites it, this time with more pressure than Harry expected. Because of this moment and more shared by their parents, Harry, who was then aged three, and Charlie, 1, ended up starring in one of the first big viral YouTube clips.
Harry was 3-years-old and Charlie was aged 1 when the original video was filmed.
However, NFT, non-fungible tokens are regarded as digital assets that are unique and can’t be exchanged. They hold value as a crypto token and are currently getting attention as celebrities get in on the action. Among those who have decided to cash in on NFT include The Disaster Girl, Zoe Roth. She is well-known as the little girl smiling while a house in the background burned.
