I would have went with the "Great Cornholio" of South Dakota.

Good for him!  The original video was adorable, and I'm sure this made his whole life up to that point.

Ride that wave, kid... but set your sights higher than South Dakota.

The Corn Palace. I wasted a few hours on my cross country trip to see that.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Is he looking for a loyal assistant?  Maybe a kernel?  If he has an offer, I'm all ears.   Won't stalk him though

That's a fun story.

The song that got made out of his original video has been stuck in my head for a week. It has the juice!

I don't know if it's just nostalgia, but when I'd visit my grandparents in Ohio we'd go to some Amish farm to get sweet corn and from what I remember it was like candy.

You don't need starch. Just a quick pass with a steam-iron and your ass will be wrinkle-free.

The kid's not wrong. Corn's farking great.

And please don't "grill" your corn in the husk. That's steaming, not grilling. Put your grill, parallel with the grate lines, on low heat. Baste each ear with unsalted butter.  Sprinkle a mix of salt, pepper, chili powder, and paprika (the base of the mix).  Close grill. Wait five minutes. Roll each ear to the next grate.  Look at the color of the corn and adjust time/heat accordingly.  Repeat basting and spicing until the entire ear is covered. Take off the grill. Rest a couple minutes, and serve. It should be golden yellow, infused with butter taste, and have a hint of dry spice crust.

If you're sweaty, use Kerrygold butter. If you're super-sweaty, clarify the Kerrygold. Make a big batch and use it for popcorn.  Always unsalted!

"Corn.  I've never prayed to you before.  I have no tongue for it.  No one, not even you will remember if we were good cooks or bad.  Why we grilled, or why we boiled.  No.  All that matters is that corn stood against hunger.  That's what's important!  Butter pleases you, Corn.  So grant me one request.  Grant me revenge!  And if you do not listen, then to hell with you!"

Thank you. My nightmares were getting a little -ahem- stale so it will be nice to have fresh material.

South Dakota?! You know South Dakota is ranked for corn production? Seventh! It's a joke. South Dakota is weak, it's feeble.

I had an ear of fresh corn yesterday and it was incredible..Like maybe one of the best ears of corn evar..
Juice running off your chin juicy and just amazeballs flavor...I steamed it, and used just a little butter and salt
on it..I hope the two ears I have left from that lot are as good..
