Whoever Moves Is Gay, also known as Do You Speak English or Spanish? Whoever Moves First Is Gay or If You Move You're Gay, refers to a series of TikTok prank videos posted by TikToker @alfonsopinpon_ in which he asks men in public, "English or Spanish?" and then tells them in their preferred language that whoever moves first is gay. Then, the heterosexual men freeze in a stare-down with the TikToker. Posted in 2024, the "Whoever moves is gay" videos earned edits and memes, predominantly surfacing in May 2024, following a viral edit posted by TikToker @dr1nkz7 which used the song "Static" by Steve Lacy ("Baby you've got somethin' in your nose / Sniffin' that K, did you feel the hole?").


On February 25th, 2024, TikToker[1] @alfonsopinpon_ posted a video in which he approached two guys in a mall and told them in Spanish that whoever moves first is gay. Over three months, the video received roughly 185,500 plays and 7,900 likes (shown below).
