Have The Simpsons done it again?

The "Hawk Tuah Girl", now identified as Hailey Welch, is everywhere right now... but was she predicted by everyone's favorite animated family?

In case you aren't up to speed, Welch has been over every social media platform recently after she took part in an interview with Tim & Dee TV.

Well, except LinkedIn - but there's probably someone out there who has turned it into a lesson about going viral on social media.


Anyway, the interview involved Welch being asked: "What’s one move in bed that makes a man go crazy every time?"

Without a moment's hesitation, the internet sensation replied: "You gotta give ’em that ‘hawk tuah’ and spit on that thang. You get me?"

If you know, you know.

Anyway, some fans are speculating that the Simpsons actually predicted the Hawk Tuah Girl...

Check out the The Simpsons scene below:


In the eighth episode of season four titled New Kid on the Block, Bart gets a crush on an older girl, Laura.

Naturally, it doesn't work out well for Bart... but one scene involves Laura spitting on his hand, much to his delight.

"The Simpsons had done it again," one user commented, as a second said: "Simpsons were prophetic… they saw the future and it has come to pass."

What do you think?


If you're after more info on Welch, which apparently most of the internet is, then look no further.

You might have seen rumors that she lost her job as a preschool teacher due to the video, but this has since been debunked.


These rumors were fueled by an article from the Tippah County Tribune (TCT), which claimed that Welch, identified as a teacher named Hailey Wellington at Epstein Day School, was forced to resign after students imitated her saying "spit on that thang."

However, Snopes clarified that TCT is a satirical publication, and the story was fictional. Welch did not lose her job over the viral video.

To capitalize on her newfound fame, Welch partnered with Fathead Threads, a Tennessee-based embroidery and apparel brand.

Despite numerous "Hawk Tuah"-themed items circulating online, Fathead Threads remains the only official vendor of licensed "Hawk Tuah" merchandise.

Jason Poteete, the owner of Fathead Threads and a longtime acquaintance of Welch, reached out to her shortly after the video gained traction.

"Of course, she hasn’t gotten a dime from the first viral video that went out," Poteete told Rolling Stone. "Nobody was asking permission for her to do nothing, neither. I just wanted her to get some profit off of this deal."

While Poteete declined to specify Welch's share of the proceeds, he confirmed that she has been in contact with a lawyer to potentially trademark the phrase.

Welch, who Poteete describes as "overwhelmed" by the attention, requested that no personal details or images of her be featured on the merchandise.

"There are some crazy people in the world who’ve reached out to her," Poteete explained. "She’s probably one of the most well-known people in the world at this point. But I don’t know if she’s embraced it."

Fathead Threads currently offers "Hawk Tuah ’24" hats in 14 colors, priced at $32.78 each, with a $50 signed version featuring a leather patch that has already sold out.

The merchandise has drawn interest from major media networks and even WWE. Poteete estimated that the company has sold over 2,000 hats, grossing at least $65,000.

"This is way out of the normal for us," Poteete said. "This is a small family-owned shop. We’re all hands on deck right now."
