Is it like
1 - "how are you doing?"
2 - "how are you?"
3 - "what are you doing now?"
And in which cases is is used? (I already know it's quite informal and between friends).

jigans It's a slang used by Red Necks which you can compare to How is it going?I believe the term "Red Neck" is also very informal, if not politically incorrect.
On the contrary, I'd say that 'Red Necks' is a politically-correct term.
Red-necks are one of those groups that many kind and thoughtful people feel free to speak negatively about.
People are waiting to help.
