  • An Egg Has Poached The Most Liked Instagram Post Crown From Kylie Jenner

Yes, a regular stock image of a brown egg.

The simple snapshot of an ordinary brown egg garnered over 23 million likes since January 4, and dethroned Jenner's adorable photo of her then-newborn baby Stormi holding the new mom's thumb. And it beat the last record holder - a photo of model Kylie Jenner's baby posted last February - by a whopping 6 million in just 10 days.

Kylie Jenner's impressive Instagram record has been snatched away...by an inanimate object: an egg! "Take that little egg", she captioned the hilarious video.

But whatever you're getting for your selfies, we can guarantee it's nowhere near what this egg is getting.


An account called "world_record_egg" launched on January 5, with the sole intention of achieving the "most-liked photo" record with a photo of an ordinary egg.

While she really didn't have to address it, Kylie thought it was really amusing that her biggest competition is an egg! Why an egg? Is it an ironic nod to Jenner's original record-breaking photo about the development of life into a living, breathing creature?

As of writing, the egg picture has 21.9 million likes. I'm gonna try to get back to as many of you as possible.
