In May 2007, the "Charlie bit my finger!" video went viral and has become one of the most viewed Internet videos ever, surpassing 488,000,000 clicks.

Five years later, the two brothers in the video (now 6 and 8 years old) have been reunited on screen to discuss their humorous place in Web history.

"Charlie bit my finger," the older brother says. "Yup," Charlie replies, in a matter-of-fact tone. "And I was screaming for help."

"Instead of helping, my parents just kept filming," he continues.  "And, now the whole world has seen it."

The video is part of a new advertising campaign by Ragu, during which the boys give a moment-to-moment recount of their experience. Though the brothers are both British, the video then cuts to a country-western song summarizing the viral video. But, hey, not to nitpick. After all, we are analyzing an Internet video about a toddler biting his sibling on the finger.
