A friend of mine recently alluded to something that he called ‘Charlie bit my finger’ and was astounded when I said that I did not know what he was talking about. He was referring to the video clip below.
The reason my friend was surprised that I had not been aware of it is because it has been viewed nearly a billion times since it was uploaded in 2007. He seemed to think that pretty much everyone on the planet with internet access must have seen it.
I admit that it is a cute video but this reinforces my sense that I have no idea of the internet zeitgeist and what makes things into huge hits.
