Since the app became globally popular in 2020, TikTok trends have been coming thick and fast but the latest one might be one of the oddest.

The “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe” trend has been all over the platform recently as the song from the childhood rhyme has appeared in many videos.

What is the “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe” trend?

The song that is showing up in clips has origins back to the 18th century and remains a popular nursery rhyme that plenty of people will be familiar with from their childhoods.

On TikTok, many youngsters are poking fun at the rhyme’s archaic content since most modern-day shoes no longer have buckles.

In one viral clip where the sound originated, a boy could be seen saying, “Check out my new shoes” before the camera zoomed in on his Nike shoes with a fake buckle added.

The man then proceeded to sing the words: “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe. Three, Four, Buckle Some More. Five, Six, Nike kicks.”
