Breanna Gray still can’t believe the pizza box-folding abilities she honed as a teenager are now part of movie history.

The Korean hit Parasite, winner of four Academy Awards including best director and best picture on Sunday, uses part of a YouTube video Gray’s brother shot of her slinging pies when she was 19.

The 50-second video shows Gray folding Gabriel Pizza boxes faster than a hungry person can order a pepperoni, mushroom and onion pizza with extra cheese.

Now a 30-year-old mother, Gray estimates she can still fold a box in about three seconds.
