Click, pose and post is expected to be the regime this day. But, wait before you post your best photographs on Instagram and start your race for the enviable “most-liked Instagram photo”. Do you know who you are competing with in this game? It’s an egg. Yes. A brown chicken egg, unblemished and uncooked, is the most liked photo on the photo-sharing platform.
In the numbers game, this egg photo has left behind celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Lionel Messi, Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish. No one beats the record to date.
The egg photo was the first post shared by an Instagram handle named world_record_egg. The caption was an ambitious one: “Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram. Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this.” Today the photo has more than 55 million likes and no celebrity photo has yet reached its benchmark.
