Here’s the song behind the viral #HandcuffChallenge!

By Bryan Durham - February 6, 2019

Chances are you’ve seen something called the #HandcuffChallenge pop up on your social media/TikTok timelines every now and then in the last few days. Also known as the #JustYouAndIChallenge, it has you and a friend/your partner being ‘bound’ together as you carry on an everyday activity, while cuffed to each other.

A nod to the video of the Tom Walker song, Just You And I, it’s a video challenge that went viral in India with the likes of Sunny Leone (along with husband Daniel Weber) taking up the challenge while working out…

They’re not alone though, the biggest names on TikTok and Instagram have taken to this challenge in a big way. From TV superstars like Siddharth Nigam and Avneet Kaur to dance sensations like Melvin Louis and Awez Darbar to social stars like Nagma Mirajkar, Mrunal Panchal and Anam Darbar among others are hooked to a track that’s really melodic.

The fun part of this challenge is that you don’t have to go shopping for cuffs and draw bemused/shocked/curious stares from people to take part. Those who have done the challenge have ‘tied’ themselves to their phones, shoes and even TV sets. In short, tie yourself to something or someone you can’t live without.

We reached out to Sunny who said, “Doing the #HandcuffChallenge in the gym was so much fun! BTW, I absolutely love the song Just You & I.” Nargis Fakhri was also seen also crushing on the cute video created by Sunny!

But how much do you know about the TOM WALKER song?

Here’s what we can share with you…


The original song was released in May 2017 and appeared as an acoustic version on his Blessings EP.

The song was re-released as a standalone single and featured on his latest album, What A Time To Be Alive.

His reason for re-releasing the track?

Guess a lot of people will be wondering why I’ve re-released “Just You And I” today. WELLL… Last year was the best years of my life. I would assume most people will think that because of music, but it’s actually because I proposed to the LOVE of my life Annie, and she said YES!!! As a little celebration I thought I’d put a little spin on the original. I know this song means a lot to a lot of people out there, but you can’t begin to understand what it means to me and Annie. Here’s my favourite picture of us, finally getting to spend a bit of time together over Christmas. She is my queen, my one and only and makes me happier than anyone could possibly imagine. P.S feel free call me a soppy cheesy bastard, I’m cool with it 😘 feels nice to be in love and to be loved back all the same #JustYouandI
