"Charlie Bit My Finger" Offers Huge Acting Lessons

If you are one of the 5 people in NYC who hasn't yet seen the YouTube sensation "Charlie Bit My Finger Again," then you have a treat in store.  Even if you've seen it, watch it again, and see if you can figure out why it has 500,000,000 views. 

Check out the pathos.  Then think about the comedic timing.  How can you direct an actor to get that last chuckle just right?  Were that each of us could get into our "child" and react to pain in such a truly honest way.  What else did you see that makes this short so hugely powerful?  Give us your comments and we can all learn. 

Did this video go on 10 seconds too long?  Another lesson?
