People were shook.

Their lives were changed.

@alovesun 自分、ビーバーみたいに齧りまくっとるけど今度からこうやって食べますわ。

"I usually nibble like a beaver, but I’ll eat it like this from next time."

While others shared their own hacks for how to eat corn on the cob.

@alovesun @kfmcgpwl 道民ですが、包丁で粒の部分をすべて切り落とし手から食べる派でっすw

"I’m from Hokkaido, but I cut off all the kernels with a knife and eat them with my hands lol."
