About two weeks after posting a photo of an egg which recently became the most-liked Instagram post, the @world_record_egg account released a nearly identical photo, and it seems people dig it as well.
The new picture, which features an egg with a slightly cracked shell, has already accrued over 4.6 million “likes”, about 14 hours after it was posted.
The image also sparked a flurry of activity on social media, with people wondering what it could mean.

the world record egg is about to crack and prove that the egg is indeed before the chicken— emma verner (@emmaverner) 19 января 2019 г.
The original egg photo was posted on 4 January, with the account’s owner urging the audience to help them “set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram”.
This undertaking proved to be a huge success, with the image accruing over 49 million likes by 19 January, vastly surpassing the amount of “likes” amassed by the previous record holder Kylie Jenner.
