There is absolutely nothing special about the egg. It seems like an ordinary brown egg. However, it has more than fifty-one million likes on Instagram, exemplifying the egg’s extraordinary worth.

On January 4, 2019, the Instagram account by the name of world_record_egg posted an image of a regular egg. The user commented: “Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram.”

On January 13, with the help of fellow users, the account did just that. The picture liked by millions beat the world record previously held by Kylie Jenner.

When Kylie Jenner posted a picture of her newborn daughter, Stormi, she received praise and love in the form of eighteen million likes, which happened to be the new world record. Nonetheless, internet humor and light-hearted cruelty led to the dethroning of Jenner’s post.

This strange occurrence is certainly not the first time that social media users decided to strive for chaos. For example, in 2017, a sixteen year-old high school student by the name of Carter Wilkerson set the world record for the highest number of retweets by foolishly asking Wendy for free chicken nuggets. Shortly after, this record number was beaten by the Twitter account of a Japanese businessman, who offered $9,250 to one-hundred random people who retweeted him.

world_record_egg’s  post received different reactions from the public. DJ Puffy (@deejaypuffy) tweeted a humorous response to the viral egg post: “Y’all wanna like a pic of an egg but don’t even like your friends pics when they post.” Kylie Jenner, the former record holder, responded with a fun video in which she cracked an egg on the hot road and captioned the video, “Take that little egg.”

The Instagram account has been updating its feed occasionally with images of eggs, cracks ever so slightly growing. This serves as an amusing method for the user to eventually reveal himself as the world record holder for the most liked post on Instagram.
