TikTok is loving the now viral "Corn Kid." It's impossible to scroll your FYP section and not get the "Corn Song" stuck in your head immediately. After his interview on Recess Therapy's TikTok page went viral, a follow up interview is what the world wanted. The second interview digs a little deeper and sheds some new light on the "Corn Kid," who we now know is named Tariq, and his obsession with the summertime vegetable.

Part Two Of A 'Corntastic' Day

This interview is similar to the last with the host of Recess Therapy shooting off well thought-out questions about corn.

"What's the top three ways you can eat corn?"

"Butter, with butter and the grease, and toasted, and toasted with the grease."

"What is the grease?"

"Actually, kinda, the thing that makes the corn good."

After a little back-and-forth about what makes the corn good, the two decided to make up a corn dance that no doubt will likely get paired up with the corn song and fill your FYP section soon enough, so get your dancing shoes ready and turn the corn song on for motivation!

Corn Break, Everyone!

The interview continued after the dance segment with Tariq being asked, "Why is it important to take a corn break?" Tariq responded, "Because you can restore your energy." The two continued discussing why it's important to love something whole heartedly, being corn friends, and the question on everyone's mind, "What's the lumps with the knobs?" Tariq schooled him with his response, "The knobs, the part of corn that's holding up vertically, so you can hold them up in any way. They keep the kernels up."
