The 56-second long video was uploaded by their father on Youtube in 2007 as he could not email it to their Godparents in America. In the video, 3-year-old Harry was spending time with one year of Charlie. Soon after Charlie bit his finger and Harry laughed over it. Harry gave his finger to Charlie again when he bit him harder. He reacted and said that Charlie bit his finger and it really hurt him. And all this while, Charlie was seen enjoying the moment and giggled over it.
