Canadian woman's viral pizza box video makes a cameo in Oscar-winning movie Parasite

If the pizza box clip in the Oscar-winning movie Parasite looks familiar to you, there's a good reason: the video went viral across Canada in 2015.

Breanna Gray — now a 30-year-old mother — uploaded the video to YouTube when she was 19.

The 50-second clip shows Gray folding pizza boxes at lightning speed, finishing a box roughly every three seconds.

The video has been viewed almost 1.5 million times.

In the Korean thriller, the protagonists — Ki-jung Kim and Ki-woo Park — watch the short clip to sharpen their own pizza box-making skills.

The event takes place at the 2:10 mark.

And Gray wasn't the only one who got a shout-out.

Gabriel Pizza — a Canadian pizza chain with locations in Ontario and Quebec — was pretty jazzed to be included.

It may have been over a decade since Gray filmed the pizza box video, but she still has the same epic skills — and on Monday, Gray took to YouTube to prove it.

Considering that one of the lead actors in Parasite is from Vancouver, the Korean film might be a little more Canadian than many fans realized.
