Is nothing sacred anymore?
One of my favorite YouTube videos has officially sold out. But then again, as far as selling out goes, this one doesn’t seem so bad.
The popular “Charlie Bit My Finger” YouTube video never fails to bring a smile to my face. Maybe it’s the two adorable children, maybe it’s the British accents, or maybe it’s the all-to-familiar exchange between an older and younger sibling. Well clearly I’m not the only adoring fan because after 366 million views, Gerber has used the video in a campaign for their Gerber Finger Goods.
The video is the same we’ve come to know and love, with added pop-ups to inform parents on how to know when their children are ready to eat finger foods– you know, instead of just their brother’s actual fingers.
The video has been up for a few weeks now and received a little more than 200,00 views. I’m unsure of how much the company paid for the rights to the video (probably enough to send both Charlie and his brother to college a few times over), but the revamped short certainly hasn’t reached the same renown as the original.
In conclusion, the video is as funny as ever, but now it contains a few parenting tips. Simple…and efffective?
