Smoking Gun on the 2 Girls, 1 Cup Vid

From The Smoking Gun:

NOVEMBER 30–Been wondering about the identity of the auteur behind the “2 Girls, 1 Cup” video that has been making millions of Internet users gag? Well, the repulsive video–which has become such an online sensation that it has been knocked off by John Mayer, Perez Hilton, and has launched tons of hilarious “reaction” videos–can be blamed on Marco Fiorito, a Brazilian man who describes himself as a “compulsive fetishist” and “an artist in the art of movie making.” The 36-year-old Sao Paulo resident became interested in cinema in 1994 and, two years later, began a fetish film business with his wife. “When we started, the only films that we made were about feet fetishes,” Firotio recalled in a court declaration, a copy of which you’ll find below. Fiorito would move on to more revolting fare, with his videos often involving excrement (as the “2 Girls, 1 Cup” video shows). That film was produced by MFX-Video, one of several Fiorito firms that included his initials in their name (an exception, of course, was the firm Vomit Brazil). While Fiorito contends that his revolting films are not illegal in Brazil, some of his works have been branded obscene by U.S. prosecutors and led last year to the indictment of Danilo Croce, a Brazilian lawyer who lived in Florida and was listed on corporate documents as an officer of a company distributing Fiorito’s films.

And someone on Flickr came up with a design for a 2 Girls 1 Cup T shirt which should be coming to you on a CafePress account in 3..2..1…
