Kevin Bacon Asks That You Lend an Ear to His Version of the Corn Song

It has the juice

Forget loosening your foot for a second and instead, lend your ear.

Kevin Bacon — or, as he's likely known to friends and family, "The Baconator" — is just like you: he simply cannot dislodge the viral kernel that is TikTok whizkid Tariq's take on corn.

As per the classic meme treatment, the now-famous kid's interview clip proceeded to be turned into another massive internet moment when it was reworked into a song by the Gregory Brothers. (You may remember them from the 2010 "Bed Intruder Song," which yes, happened a full 12 years ago now. We are all withering away into nothingness.)

Bacon is famous for acting, but has seemingly entered the 2020s on a new path dedicated to raising goats. Ever the performer, he has also become known for serenading the screaming little cuties. Although he recently sang "Heated" from Beyoncé's RENAISSANCE to them, the goats are actually nowhere to be seen in the actor's latest TikTok.

Instead of the barnyard, Bacon appears on some patio furniture with a picturesque ocean view. His fun vacation shirt places the emphasis on button-down. Guitar in hand, he likewise wields an ear of corn on the cob, which he uses to strum the tune. Inspired!

Taste it with butter and let everything change by watching the clip below.
