TikTok's latest meme trend involves pilgrim-inspired Nike kicks and a parody of the nursery rhyme "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe." On TikTok, the viral video and its memes are being dubbed 1 2 Buckle My Shoe.

Shoe roasts seem to have a unique hold on internet meme culture. With a history that can be traced through the "What Are Those?" frenzy of the Vine days, through the impeccably pitched roasts delivered by Slv_Soundss.

So where exactly did this goofy ahh sound come from and how did it evolve from "In My Solitude" and other TikTok sounds? Let's explain.

What Is The Original '1 2 Buckle My Shoe' Video?

In April 2023, TikToker @edmondx posted a video showing himself wearing a Vlone shirt and a pair of Nike shoes that seemed to have some sort of makeshift buckle attached to them. He can be seen beckoning the cameraman, only to burst into a rendition of the English nursery rhyme that went, "One, two, buckle my shoe. Three, four, buckle some more. Five, six, Nike kicks!"

The kid in the video then let out a celebratory "Whooo! That is so fire!" before walking away from the camera. Many proclaimed that it was already a "Hood Classic."
