CHAW-LAY!

Yeah, one of the internet's OG viral videos, "Charlie Bit My Finger," just sold as an NFT for three-quarters of a milli.

And now it's going to be pulled from YouTube.

The 2007 video of a baby chomping his older brother's finger is the latest viral meme-ory to be auctioned off as a non-fungible token (NFT) for big bucks. (A non-fungible token is a certificate of ownership for a digital asset that is unique and is not meant to serve as a means of exchange.)

The 55-second video of Harry Davies-Carr, then 3, getting nipped by 1-year-old baby brother Charlie is one of the most-watched YouTube videos of all time.

...

The original clip had been viewed more than 883 million times as of Monday morning.

...On Sunday, a bidder under the name "3fmusic" scored the NFT for $760,999 following a fierce bidding war. What's more, the winner will get to film their own version of "Charlie Bit Me" with the brothers, who are now 17 and 15 years old.

That's a lot of stinkin money.
