TikTok claims to show 'Charlie bit my finger' kid, dad denies it's him – Insider

A TikTok claiming to show one of the brothers from the famous “Charlie bit my finger” YouTube video giving a tour of his yacht has gone viral, but their father told Insider the man in the video is not one of his sons.
On January 12, TikToker Ted Zhar shared a video to his 495,000 followers with the caption, “What Does Charlie ‘Bit My Finger’ Do For a Living?” In the video, a voice from behind the camera asked a person standing inside a boat what he did for work, to which he replied, “Oh, I’m Charlie Bit My Finger.” 
It then cut to a clip from the 2007 video, in which a three-year-old named Harry Davies-Carr could be seen sitting with his one-year-old brother Charlie. Harry placed his finger in Charlie’s mouth who appeared to bite down. The older sibling reacted with the now infamous line, “Charlie bit me” and “Charlie, that really hurt!” It was viewed over 882 million times on YouTube before being made private when the family sold it as an NFT in 2021 for over $760,000.
The TikTok also showed the person claiming to be from the video giving a tour of a yacht, which they said they’d had since 2017, and featured a jacuzzi and a ping-pong table. 
The TikTok received 8.3 million views and over 2,700 comments, a number of which appeared to believe the person was indeed from the viral YouTube clip, joking that they would have let their sibling bite them if they could reap the same rewards.
One comment which expressed doubt that the person in the TikTok was from the original video received over 2,900 likes. “No way that’s charlie,” it said. On Instagram, where Zhar also posted the video, the top comment with over 1,000 likes reads, “That is NOT Charlie but my finger.”
Howard Davies-Carr, the father of the “Charlie Bit My Finger” brothers who uploaded the original video to their YouTube channel, told Insider via email that the boy in the TikTok video was not his son.
“This video has nothing to do with Harry or Charlie,” Davies-Carr said. “There have been any number of instances of people pretending to be Harry or Charlie over the years.” He told Insider he had seen the video and found it to be “of no real harm, just a little sad really.” Zhar did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
Zhar regularly uploads videos to TikTok which include him asking people on the street what they do for a living. In the past his videos have featured a number of notable names including actor Adam Sandler, professional basketball player Kyle Kuzma, and record producer Benny Blanco
He often posts the same content on Instagram, where he has 119,000 followers, and YouTube, where he has 140,000 subscribers.
