Britney Spears is currently on the North American leg of her worldwide Piece of Me tour, which she began following the conclusion of her four-year-long Planet Hollywood Las Vegas residency of the same name. It’s Britney’s first international tour in over six years, so it goes without saying that fans are beyond excited.
So excited, that, while recently attending a show at the Borgota in Atlantic City, one Britney superfan named Zachary Gordon couldn’t wait for Spears to utter her famous line in the intro to “Gimmie More,” and yelled, “WHO IS IT?”
The interruption caught Spears off guard but caused her to laugh mid-performance.
I can now be known as the guy in the crowd that made Britney laugh. <imgsrc=”” alt=”😍” class=”wp-smiley” style=”height: 1em; max-height: 1em;”> #BritneySpears #PieceOfMeTour #BritneyPieceOfMe #PieceOfMe #itsBritneyBitch #BritneyArmy @britneyspears @absolutebritneycom @iamsarahmitchell @thepchu @kaylie_yee
Video of Gordon’s teasing heckle went viral, and now, as BuzzFeed reported, it’s become a full-blown Thing and now people are screaming “WHO IS IT” before Spears can say “It’s Britney, bitch.” One fan pointed out on Twitter that the fan-made interaction has entire venues participating.
Britney stans screaming “WHO IS IT” before she says “it’s Britney bitch” is a fan made thing that just popped out of nowhere like a week and a half ago and now entire venues are participating and it’s my favorite thing FUCKING EVER

For her part, Spears adorably takes the new phenomenon in stride.

Even Britney’s hunky 24-year-old fitness model boyfriend Sam Asghari is into it, in an Instagram story he shared at a concert earlier this week.

So, this is pretty much never not going to happen before Spears sings “Gimmie More” in concert ever again. But as long as everyone is having fun, what’s the harm?
