Tch…

It had to happen; goatse and other shock sites have lost their shock value.

Instead, people are now flocking to a shockingly shocking shocker of a shock site that goes by the name ‘2girls1cup’. It’s hosted at 2girls1cup.com (and recently has been mirrored by a [adjectives fail me] entrepreneur at cupchicks.com) but for pity’s sake do NOT feel that your life will be enriched by watching the video; these URLs are here for reference purposes only.

If I leave it at that, some people are still going to visit, so allow me to expand on my point:

You don’t need to see 2girls1cup to understand/appreciate the growing meme activity surrounding it. If you let your curiosity get the better of you, you will need a serious dose of mind-bleach to wash the stains away. Seriously. Hell, I’m even going to warn you to not go poking around too many ‘reactions’ videos (the primary subject of this post), as the majority of them contain repeated gagging, retching and/or outright vomiting. I’m a sympathy-hurler from way back and have no wish to subject others to something I myself can’t watch without discomfort.

OK, are we clear and agreed? You’re to look at the recommended links only and explore no further? Good-oh. On we go…

You may have noticed that YouTube features an alarming number of webcam videos that basically involve a person delivering a monologue to camera, or ‘hilariously’ lip-synching to one song or another. What has emerged from 2girls1cup is a sport that generates videos with the kind of spontaneity and raw emotion that is usually lacking in videos of this type.

It basically involves sitting a victim (or victims) in front of the 2girls1cup video and recording their reactions, or recording your own reaction to a first viewing. It is, essentially, a video version of My First Goatse (see also).

Please remember that I’ve tried to choose examples that are typical in every way bar the inclusion of gagging, retching and/or outright vomiting, *but* you should also be aware that some NSFW audio will be involved throughout:

Here is a typical ‘self-inflicted on webcam’ reaction.

Here is a typical ‘sharing 2girls1cup with friends on webcam’ reaction.

Here is a typical collection of 2girls1cup reactions.

Here’s a kindly chap who showed 2girls1cup to his mother on her birthday.

Here’s the 2girls1cup meme reaching Spain.

OK, all done? Curiosity aroused but (hopefully) held safely at bay?

Good, because I have a special reward for you.

If you find yourself wondering exactly what’s in the 2girls1cup video and/or sneering at the low-rent entertainment of the ‘reactions’ videos, then this very special music video with admirably high production values should see you right. Again, be aware that NSFW audio is involved:

A FINAL WORD – I’m really trying to do you a favour here, so let me spell it out for you so there’s no confusion…

There are many ways for you to challenge yourself in this life; you do not need to subject yourself to coprophilia, coprophagia, emetophilia, vomerophilia, and this unique combination of all four to become a better person.

You do, however, need to be aware of this meme, because there is now a very good chance that at least one of you will soon be invited by a ‘friend’ to spend one short minute watching a video while they record your reaction.

UPDATE (12 Dec) – Comments and Trackback have been disabled on this entry, due to repeated spamming attempts by yet more entrepreneurs chasing the gold at the end of the cupchick rainbow.

    The song is wonderful – delivered with a straight face too.I've seen the aforementioned site, and I obviously had my shock-filtering pants on that day … it just screamed "FAKE" to me.Whatever floats your boat.

  2. Manic says

    Even if it is faked, it's still undeniably awful. I love the song, too. It's class act that leaves JPEG Baby in the dust.

    I still prefer "Hey, Hey 16K" though – maybe it's my age.http://www2.b3ta.com/heyhey16k/

    I wouldn't be too certain about it being fake. Someone on the Something Awful forums a while back called Metis was obsessed with scat pornography, and managed with the help of other "goons" to get the funding together for a movie filmed in Brazil which quickly became infamous for its "scat swapping."It's strange, I can watch most of the very worst that the internet has to offer, yet scat is still one of those things that can occasion make me wretch.

    I'm with Septicisle on this. I've seen some s**t in my time, but…
