Tired of your old ringtones? For the first time, the classic A Nightmare On Elm Street theme ‘Jump Rope’ (better known as ‘Freddy’s Coming’) is available as a ringtone! Oh happy mobile day!
To horror movie fans, it’s a familiar song.
“One, Two, Freddy’s coming for you
Three, Four, better lock your door
Five, Six grab your crucifix
Seven, Eight, better stay up late
Nine, Ten, never sleep again”
‘Jump Rope’ features the eerie juxtaposition of children’s voices singing innocently in unison while offering a warning about Freddy Krueger, and it has exhilarated fans for many years. Now, for the first time, and just in time for Halloween, this classic theme has been made available as a ringtone for fans to purchase by texting the word “Nightmare” to 71777.
The song is based on the nursery rhyme “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe”, which was first published in London in 1805 and is still used today to teach children to count … and to warn them that Freddy’s Coming!
The ringtone will be available through all major carriers. Standard messaging rates apply.
