I've stopped trying to understand how some videos on YouTube can get hundreds of millions of hits, while others languish; but it's not hard to see how this simple video of a man showing a neat trick on shucking corn with minimal effort and without a strand of silk has garnered close to 5 million hits since it was uploaded in September.
Yes, he's technically cooking the corn, but you can't argue with how useful a kitchen tip it is. This time, the millions of views are deserved, in my opinion.
