The Hawk Tuah Girl, also known as the Spit On That Thing Girl or Spit On That Thang Girl, refers to a woman who was interviewed in a viral TikTok video and was asked, “What’s one move in bed that makes a man go crazy every time?” to which she responded in a Southern accent, “Oh, you gotta give him that hawk tuah and spit on that thang,” resembling a spitting sound amid oral sex. Instagram user and YouTubers Tim & Dee TV posted the original video filmed in Nashville, Tennessee. TikToker Dustin Laney (@iamdlaney) reposted the video in mid-June 2024, leading to its virality. The blonde girl seen with her friend was dubbed the “Hawk Tuah Girl” (sometimes written “hock tuh”), leading to memes, fancam edits and humorous romanticization from male internet users who found themselves attracted to her. A green-screen CapCut template also surfaced as an exploitable meme with the Hawk Tuah Girl used by meme creators who added her overtop backgrounds, inserting her into different scenarios. The identity and name of the Hawk Tuah Girl is currently unknown.

The viral video was a street interview in which the dude asked, “What’s one move in bed that makes a man go crazy every time?” The unnamed blonde girl responded with some suggestive spitting onomatopoeia and since then, the search for her “@” has become a manhunt.


The original video was posted as an Instagram Reel by YouTubers Tim & Dee TV. The interview was conducted in Nashville, Tennessee with two women out on the main street who were likely bar hopping or taking a break from the club.
