Corn Kid Tariq And Mr. Beast Meet Again!
The video shows Tariq holding a Halloween pumpkin pail waiting for his treat and Mr. Beast, whose real name is Jimmy Donalson, holding a handful of corn-on-the-cob. Then the two danced with the corn to Snoop Dogg’s “Sensual Seduction.”
Fans of the two Internet sensations popped into the comments to leave their thoughts. Sandwich shop Jimmy John’s wrote, “icons only.” SONIC Drive-In said, “CORN FOR ALL 🌽✨” Another follower chimed in with, “You two are so cute. A friendship we didn’t know we needed. ❤️” Other followers commented about how adorable their friendship is, how much they liked his costume, and some even left “Corn Song” references.
This isn’t the first encounter for the two Internet friends. Tariq showed up to Mr. Beast Burgers grand opening at American Dream in East Rutherford, New Jersey in September. The corn-loving boy even tried a Mr. Beast burger and gave his review of new restaurant’s food in a TikTok video on Mr. Beast Burger’s page. When asked how the burger tasted, Tariq said, “Super good, juicy, greasy, and delicious, just like corn! 10 out of 10, like really good.”
