For what seems like forever, “It’s corn!” it’s stuck on replay in our heads. Possibly the song of the summer, the TikTok jingle has brought the masses together, igniting a cultural firestorm of memes, tweets, more TikToks, and of course, real-life songs. Corn is everywhere, it has the juice. (has the juice), and we cannot imagine a more beautiful thing!
If you’re one of the few people scratching your head wondering what corn song we’re talking about, let us explain: corn had its golden moment a few weeks ago, when a little boy melted the hearts of the internet in a TikTok posted by user @ Recess Therapy. In the video, the account’s host, Julian Shapiro-Barnum, interviews Tariq, who adorably exclaims that he “really likes corn,” before listing his compliments (“He’s got the juice… I can’t imagine anything else!” handsome!”. )
After another creator (@Schmoyoho) took Tariq’s cornsilk soliloquy and turned it into an absolutely explosive song (below), the song that has been playing over and over in our brains ever since. It is so catchy. I quietly hummed it on my daily walks and while cooking dinner. In other cases, I found myself singing “A GREAT BRUTO WITH GOATS” to absolutely no one. It must be an earworm and, honestly, it has made us very hungry for corn.
