TikTok's new favorite 7-year-old, the “Corn Kid," was just named the “corn-bassador” of South Dakota.
Tariq, who is lovingly known on TikTok as Corn Kid, went viral earlier this month after his segment with kid-interview web series Recess Therapy began circulating the Internet. “For me, I really like corn," says Tariq in the video, which has now amassed over 20 million views. “When I tried it with butter, everything changed!”
Tariq's unbearably adorable and wholesome love of corn has propelled him into viral fame because someone made his interview into a song. Last week, he was crowned the official corn-bassador of South Dakota. Governor Kristi Noem even declared September 3, 2022 “Official Corn-bassador Tariq Day.”
