This isn't the first time the show's creators have commented on the famous scene. Almost immediately after the the episode aired back in May, creator Mike Judge talked to the Hollywood Reporter about the sequence and confirmed, "It's real!" Later, the always even-handed folks at PETA declared the scene "arranged rape." Multiple websites ran "explainers" about the moment, which, if you didn't watch the video and didn't realize by now, features two horses actually screwing.
Also revealed at the SDCC panel: stars Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, and Josh Brener all read for the role of Erlich Bachman, the now-iconic stoner played by T.J. Miller. But bits of trivia took a back seat to Season 3's big sex scene, which hopefully, by reliving the horrors of this sequence in a giant hall filled with fans, helped the cast members of Silicon Valley move on with their lives. It's time to heal. It's time to forgive ourselves. It's time to stop talking about horse semen.
