This is no yoke! I repeat, this is no yoke!
On January 4th, an Instagram profile with the handle @world_record_egg posted a picture of an egg on their page. They vowed to have the most liked Instagram photo of all time, imploring for people to like the egg picture in order to break the world record. Not only did it seem like they manifested some higher power into their goal, but as if they also willed their proclamation into existence!
In 9 short days, on January 13th, the picture of the egg has garnered over 21 million likes with over 880,000 comments in total, beating Kylie Jenner out of her title of being Instagram’s World Record Holder. Before all of this, Kylie Jenner had the most likes on an Instagram post, her picture of daughter Stormi Webster having more than 18 million likes total. But what’s even better about this whole thing: Kylie liked the egg picture too! At least she wasn’t too poached over the loss of her crown and was a good sport about it all.
With this record breaking, “egg cracking” start for the EGG GANG (the actual account name), where can they go from here?
“It doesn’t end here though, we’re only just getting started,” said the EGG GANG in an Instagram Story post they made for their followers.
It’s great to know that even eggs have dreams and that they are very positive about the future; sunny-side up even! At least they are able to start their new Instagram venture with a whopping 2 million followers and a brand that is truly unforgettable. Talk about good marketing!
What do you think is next for the EGG GANG? Do you think they will continue breaking Instagram records or do you think this is a one and “over easy” kind of deal? Or, do you think something will beat out the egg for Instagram’s World Record Breaker? Comment below and tell us what you are thinking!
