• 2022 was a very eventful year in social media
  • There were many trending moments from all over the web
  • Here are the most viral of the year

One of the most popular online moments of the year was also one of the sweetest moments. In August, a little boy named Tariq made a memorable moment on TikTok. In an interview with @doingthings, he revealed his great passion: corn. But it wasn't so much the fact that his passion is corn, so much as how he came to that conclusion...

These viral clips will live long in the memory!

Here's how Tariq explained it in his own words (and get ready to laugh, by the way): "Ever since I was told that corn was real, it tasted good", the boy explained. The clip was so successful that a remix was even made from his words. The hashtag "#itscorn" reached more than a billion hits!
