With the parody of the well-known nursery chant “1, 2, Buckle My Shoe,” TikTok users are becoming extremely famous with this trend. It is a long-standing nursery rhyme that has appeared in numerous videos on the social media app. The video is of a teenager who is flaunting his new buckle shoes. Along with it, he is also singing a modified version of the song. This looks to be the source of this trend.

The original video’s catchy singing contributed to the “1, 2, Buckle My Shoe” TikTok trend’s rise to fame. The song’s continuing appeal can also be traced to the nostalgia it inspires. The nursery rhyme may bring back pleasant memories for many users from childhood or hearing it on children’s television programs like Barney.

People have recently joined this wave, making TikTok videos that feature this parody. The TikTok trend “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe” is a modified version of the well-known children’s nursery rhyme from the 18th century. The trend is meant to mock the original song by comparing the music and the current.

The trend started when on April 15, 2023, Edmonx (@edmondx) posted a video on his profile where he displayed his brand-new Nike shoes for the audience. However, the part of the well-known nursery rhyme video’s the most entertaining element. It was “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe” with a Gen Z twist.

Ed altered the original lyrics to make it more lighthearted. The parody lyrics are “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe. Three, four, Buckle some more. Five, Six, Nike kicks“. The impressive lyrics to sell his Nike shoes and his nasal singing style increased the hilarity.

Since then, TikTok users have started using the music from this version of the song. The song makes fun of the archaic shoes that used to come with buckles. Since most everyday shoes no longer have buckles, the song’s words can seem goofy. However, the song’s beat can transport listeners back in time.

How much popularity has the trend gained?

Over 18.1 million people have watched the video. Moreover, it has received 46K comments and 4 million likes. People who found the song entertaining have also shared it on Twitter. This trend has emerged as the latest one on the app.

Over 33,000 TikTok users have used the original music while making their videos. “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe” was even modified and remixed by some users. However, they changed Ed’s original video’s audio for amusement.

Any TikTok user who has heard the music will gush over it. This is because more than 4,000 users have carried it and followed the trend. Furthermore, the music has been recycled to fit various videos contributing to the trend’s success. On TikTok, this frequently happens because trending sounds are commonly used in many videos. As a result, this has the effect of starting a chain reaction.
