OBCD is an internet slang term and play on words used as an alternative to the word "obesity," as "O-B-C-D" sounds like "obesity" when each letter is spoken. The term, derived from "OCD," meaning "obsessive-compulsive disorder," was first defined on Urban Dictionary in 2011 but has been used online since as early as 2008. It went viral after appearing in a Nikocado Avocado mukbang video in 2022. The audio clip of Orlin saying Nikocado has OBCD went viral on TikTok in the latter half of 2022 throughout early 2023.
It is unclear when the term "OBCD" was first used online. The earliest known use of the term was posted to Twitter on June 16th, 2008, by user @greychr, writing, "Client has free coffee, tea, and diet soft drinks only. Want sugary sodas? Buy one from the machines. Your OBCD connection has been refused" (shown below).
On March 25th, 2011, marquee.blogs.cnn user Bobb responded to a story about George Lopez and Kirstie Alley, writing, "It's not Kirstie's fault. She has a condition kinda like OCD. It's called OBCD." The term was then defined on Urban Dictionary on April 8th of that year, garnering over 33 likes in 12 years (definition seen below).
"Literally means 'Obesity.' Term is used when one attempts to refer to one's state of obesity without actually saying the word."
On August 5th, 2022, YouTuber More Nikocado posted a mukbang video where Nikocado gives a tour of his cupboard. He says, "I identify as rich and I mean, I kind of have OCD," then his husband Orlin interjects and says, "You mean OBCD." The video gained over a million views in seven months (shown below).
On August 6th, TikToker @kltbii posted an edit of the clip, garnering over 7.5 million views in the same span of time (shown below). On September 2nd, the Nikocado clip was posted to /r/fakedisordercringe, garnering over 2,600 upvotes in six months. On November 9th, TikToker @chriserotica posted a video sniping someone on Roblox set to the sound from the YouTube video, garnering over 1.2 million views in four months.
