Girls Can Code - 2 Girls 1 Cup - Netflix
2 Girls 1 Cup is the unofficial nickname of the trailer for Hungry Bitches, a 2007 Brazilian scat-fetish pornographic film produced by MFX Media. The trailer features two women conducting themselves in fetishistic intimate relations, including defecating into a cup, taking turns in what appears to be consuming the excrement, and vomiting into each other's mouths. “Lovers Theme” by Hervé Roy plays throughout the video. The video went viral and became one of the best known shock videos in itself and for the reactions its graphic content elicited from viewers who had not seen such content before. Around mid-October 2007, video-sharing sites including YouTube were flooded with videos depicting others' reactions to watching the video for the first time. Many other reaction videos have now appeared for similarly shocking and extreme videos.

In the media the video has been used as an example of the poor content quality of YouTube and similar video-sharing websites, and their tendency towards deliberately shocking content. Esquire magazine showed the video to actor George Clooney during an interview, prompting him to compare it to a rodeo, saying the point of the video was to see “how long you can last”. In an episode of Tosh.0, the entire audience is filmed reacting to this video. Host Daniel Tosh called it the World's Largest Reaction Video in terms of number of people being filmed. The cast of Avenue Q, responding to The Muppets' version of “Bohemian Rhapsody”, made a video of “We Will Rock You”/“We Are the Champions” (known as “We Will Rock Q”), ending with Nicky surfing the internet, finding 2 Girls 1 Cup (indicated by the soundtrack), and vomiting as the screen fades to black. The site was featured in a Dr Pepper Facebook promotion open to minors, which resulted in The Coca-Cola Company terminating its relationship with the digital marketing agency responsible. Jim Edwards of BNET said that Coca-Cola has full responsibility for allowing the situation to occur, arguing that Coca-Cola selected an advertising agency that openly advertised “profane” advertising campaigns and that the Coca-Cola executive who approved the 2 Girls 1 Cup line failed to do research on what the name meant.
