I’m Cackling Over These Corn Kid TikToks Blowing Up The FYP

If you’re an active TikTok viewer, or simply someone on the internet,  you’ve likely seen or heard the “Corn Song” sometime in the past few weeks. 

Released by musical quartet the Gregory Brothers through their YouTube channel Schmoyoho, the “Corn Song” is all over our FYPs. The Gregory Brothers are also the creators of the viral “Chrissy Wake Up” sound that previously trended. 

The sound’s origins lie in an interview conducted by Recess Therapy, a popular social media interview series with children ages 2 to 9 by Julian Shapiro-Barnum. Enter: Tariq, the Corn Kid. 

On August 4, Shapiro-Barnum interviewed Tariq, who was holding a half-eaten corn cob on a stick. The original video opens with Tariq stating proudly, “For me… I really like corn. Ever since I was told that corn was real, it tasted good!”

In the (adorable) original video, which gained 1.4M likes on Instagram, Tariq goes on to explain his passion for the yellow vegetable, telling Shapiro-Barnum “I can’t imagine a more beautiful thing.”

With the help of autotune and inspiration from Tariq’s pure love of corn, The Gregory Brothers created the now viral audio remixing his statements about corn on Recess Therapy.

Since the “Corn Song” was released, it has amassed millions of views, with around 290.9K videos posted under the sound on TikTok. Creators on the app are using the sound to express their love for various things — from girl’s nights in to the color green. Here are 17 of the funniest TikToks using the “Corn Song.”
