Evolution of Charlie Bit Me

This is a short video clip that I put together for my class last night. It shows many different adaptations of Charlie Bit me video, which was originally posted in March 2007. Since then, this 55-second video has been watched almost 130 million times. A quick search on You Tube with “Charlie Bit Me” produces 13,900 different videos. Through this clip, I wanted to show the nature of unbound innovation with digital technology to my students. You see how Charlie evolves move to different countries, ages, and gender over time. Then, you see a group of kids doing Charlie. Then, you see a series of animations including Charlie Brown, Unicon, and even Lego characters. It ends with a hip-hop remix of Charlie video and a live performance by a using the track.
