1, 2 Oatmeal is a parody of the "Gourmet Race" theme from the video game Kirby Super Star, which has been used in music remixes and YouTube Poops.


On March 21st, 1996, the video game Kirby Super Star was released in Japan.[1] In the sub game, "Gourmet Race," Kirby composer Jun Ishikawa's theme can be heard.

On June 16th, 2009, YouTuber[2] mariofan888 uploaded a video entitled "Kirby's Titlemusic," which plays the music to "Gourmet Race." Within nine years, the video (shown below) has received more than 19,000 views.

A year and 4 months later, on November 27th, 2010, mariofan888 uploaded a German parody called "1 2 Haferbrei". The lyrics roughly translate to:

"1, 2 oatmeal
Kirby is a pink guy
1, 2 oatmeal
Because Kirby's very cute (x2)

Kirby inhaled his enemies, and makes it later
Kirby is so happy that's something he can because he's such a pink guy (x2)

Here comes Kirby Meta Knight to protect
because he is attacked by King Dedede
Meta Knight swings the sword of King Dedede, defeat
What a triumph is that? (x2)"

"1 2 Haferbri" (shown below) received more than 291,000 views in seven years.


On June 3rd, 2011, Youtuber[3] けんしん uploaded an English-language version of the song. Within seven years, the video (shown below, left) received more than 175,000 views.

On September 9th, 2017, YouTuber[4] ben3759 posted an extended version of the song. The post (shown below, left) received more than 2,900 views in four months.

Two months later, on November 25th, 2017, YouTuber AutisticYui[7] posted a Steamed Hams replacement remix of the song. The post (shown below, right) received more than 1,800 views.

On September 6th, 2017, YouTuber[5] and Twitch streamer[6] SimpleFlips first heard and reacted to the 1, 2 Oatmeal song (shown below) and, much like most, was hilariously confused by the almost unintelligible lyrics.

On January 23rd, 2018, SimpleFlips posted the video "The Truth Behind 1 2 Oatmeal (Hilarious Song Request)." In the video, a Twitch viewer named Complex Rolls requests Twitch Streamer SimpleFlips play "1 2 Oatmeal." The post (shown below) received more than 40,000 views in three weeks.


Following the popularity of 1, 2 Oatmeal, YouTuber AutisticYui created a playlist of 1, 2 Oatmeal remixes[8] that now contains over 580 unique remixes with over 630,000 views that includes remixes made by both ben3759, AutisticYui, and SimpleFlips himself.
