The World Record Egg on January 4 made its first post on Instagram, urging users to push its likes past the then-record holder, Kylie Jenner, for her baby-announcement post from almost a year earlier. In the short video, the egg talked about how the "pressure of social media" was getting to them, and encouraged others who were struggling to "talk to someone".
It then provides a link to the Mental Health America website. The account's sole objective, at least at the time, was to unseat billionaire makeup mogul Kylie Jenner as the record holder for the world's most-liked Instagram photo. The photo of a spotted egg is now sitting at over 50 million likes - way more than Kylie's 18 million likes.
Godfrey also claimed the popularity of the egg account was "completely organic", without the use of paid influencers, and that its popularity was fuelled by younger users - some of which are technically too young to even use Instagram. "An egg is an egg, it's universal", Godfrey said.

The advertisement began, "Recently, I started to crack". According to Eugene's team, mental health is just the first of several causes they hope to get behind.
Experts had estimated the first brand to crack the egg's market might pay as much as $10 million for the exposure.
