"Testing 1,2,3" is the second single by Canadian rock group Barenaked Ladies from their album "Everything to Everyone". The music video features lead singer Ed Robertson drawing on a chalkboard. It is believed to be about "One Week" and how people think about that song when they think of the band, and Ed's saying, "We have new music. 'One Week' is from 1998, and it's 2003. Try listening to our new stuff." In one scene, on the chalkboard, he's written some of the lyrics to "One Week". "Testing 1,2,3" peaked at #19 on the U.S. "Billboard" Hot Adult Top 40 Tracks.

The song was written by Ed Robertson and Steven Page. Robertson, Page, and keyboardist Kevin Hearn all appear to play guitars in this song, with Hearn using a 12-stringed Stratocaster during live performances, which may or may not be the same 12-string guitar used in the studio.
