Carl and Heidi Farrow, from Battisford, uploaded a video of lovable Charlie trying to get attention from Carl back in November, 2015, with the title "Ignoring a Labrador".

Heidi said: "For the first two-and-a-half years it didn't get many views, just like a few other videos we had uploaded.

"Fast forward to February last year, and it racked up an amazing 42,000 views! We couldn't believe how it had gotten so popular.

"Anyway, from then until now, YouTube have been recommending our video worldwide and at this present moment it currently has over 15 million views, and in the past 48 hours alone, it has been watched over 1.7 million times."
