When YouTube was a fledgling 5 year old company, way back in 2010, Time Magazine (remember magazines) ranked the top videos of all time and this one from way back in 2007 had over 170 million views.
Back then, Charlies mom and dad said “Even had I thought of trying to get my boys to do this I probably couldn’t have. Neither were coerced into any of this and neither were hurt (for very long anyway). This was just one of those moments when I had the video camera out because the boys were being fun and they provided something really very funny.”
It was funny then and it is funny now.
