TikTokers are pitting their first fictional crush and current fictional crush against each other as part of the “Watch Your Man, You Should Watch Your Mouth” trend. These videos are set to Migos, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B’s “MotorSport.”

These videos typically begin with on-screen text indicating the creator is going to share their first fictional crush and their current fictional crush. The first crush appears when Nicki Minaj raps, “Watch your man.” The second shows up when Minaj continues on to say, “Then you should watch your mouth,” which makes it look like the two characters are about to duel for the creator’s affection.  The results are hilarious.

There are over 82,800 videos linked to the audio on the app.

There’s also a K-pop version where creators make it appear like their ultimate biases are about to go head-to-head. A very popular version features a member of BTS and ATEEZ going at it. I won’t ruin the surprise for you.
