The most recent meme craze on TikTok features Nike sneakers with a pilgrim theme and a parody of the children’s song “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe.” The popular video and its memes are getting viral as 1 2 Buckle My Shoe on TikTok.
Internet meme culture seems to be particularly dominated by shoe roasts. whose origins can be traced back to the “What Are Those?” craze of the Vine era and the perfect roasts by Slv_Soundss.
So how did “In My Solitude” and other TikTok sounds change into this silly ahh sound, and where did they come from? So, let’s see what’s going on exactly.
What is the “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe” trend?
On April 15, 2023, @edmondx, a TikTok content creator, shared a video featuring his new Nike shoes. The video’s humorous aspect was a Gen Z adaptation of the familiar nursery rhyme “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe,” in which Eddy altered his voice and sang “1 2 buckle my shoe, three four…five, six, Nike kicks!”
Eddy modified his voice a little and sang:
“1 2 buckle my shoe, three four….five, six, Nike kicks!”
Eddy’s version of the nursery rhyme was more lighthearted and humorous compared to the original lyrics. He used a nasal tone to generate more amusement and incorporated catchy lyrics to advertise his Nike shoes. Although the original song may seem a bit ridiculous because most shoes no longer feature buckles, its rhythm can transport listeners back to their childhood memories.
