2 Girls and 1 Cup of Chocolate Rain

thumbsdownSometimes an Internet meme spirals out of control and becomes so pervasive I intentionally won't reference it. This has happened a couple of times over the past several months so I'm going to combine the two in one quick and dirty entry.

Tay Zonday's "Chocolate Rain" was everywhere all summer long and was one of my guilty pleasures. There's something about his delivery that kept me coming back for more. It cheesy fun in the best way.

I'm writing about "Chocolate Rain" now because his Internet celebrity has been purchased to promote Dr. Pepper. "Cherry Chocolate Rain", which you can see here, is an excellent example of what happens when something viral is co-opted by marketing executives. It went from hit to shit, which is a perfect segue to the world of "2 Girls 1 Cup".

"2 Girls 1 Cup" only recently broke and now it's absolutely everywhere. The latest web fad is sharing videos of people reacting to watching this video. I'm hesitant to link to "2 Girls 1 Cup" for fear you might click over and watch it. It shouldn't be seen. This one has a gross factor of 10 and includes acts you shouldn't even think about let alone watch, but if that's your thing, watch at your own risk, just don't hold me responsible if you're offended.

To cleanse you from that unfortunate experience, here's Tay Zonday's original Internet hit, "Chocolate Rain". Better late than never...
