In case you missed it, the Instagram account World_Record_Egg has made the Guinness World Record for the most liked image on Instagram with over 47 million likes and 7.4 million followers on Instagram as of January 17th. In only 10 days the post beat previously held record by Kylie Jenner of her daughter Stormi, which earned over 18 million likes.
As you could probably tell, we feel passionately about eggs, so we could not be happier that this simple stock photo image took the world by scramble and made it to the top.
Rooting For The Underdog
Even though this accomplishment doesn’t exactly help or make a positive impact on the world, it’s inspiring to see just how many people rallied behind this “cause”. It’s easy to like an egg and so simple to join the movement of people rooting for this unnamed, non-celebrity, underdog to hit a world record. And, everyone loves rooting for the underdog. The power of social media cannot be overlooked, and what’s even more impressive is that this was an unpaid campaign that went viral.
