The Davis-Carr family auction page states that the video will soon be unavailable.

“Charlie Bit My Finger” is not the first classic meme to once again give its creators some nice additional income in the form of NFTs. Zoe Roth, who became known as “Disaster Girl,” only sold the original photo of the meme in mid-April. In the famous photo, four-year-old Zoya poses in front of a burning house. One bidder paid 180 ETH, which is roughly $ 485,000. Roth even retained the copyright.
