An Instagram Hit Cracks To Reveal Itself

The idea behind the cryptic image of an egg that has become Instagram’s most liked photo ever has now been revealed: It is part of a mental health awareness campaign.

The egg, known as Eugene, has now cracked after "feeling the pressure" of all the attention it's received, reports the BBC.

A message posted alongside the broken egg advises people to seek help if they feel the same way.

More than 52 million people have now liked the original picture, which was posted in January.

When the first image of the egg appeared online, it looked like it only had one aim – to stop Kylie Jenner being the "Queen of Instagram".

The accompanying message said: "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."

It took just nine days for Eugene to beat the reality TV star's picture of her holding hands with her newborn daughter, Stormi.

A total of six images of the egg –with varying levels of damage – have been posted from the account @world_record_egg since January 4.

This latest post is a video showing the egg cracking alongside a caption that reads: "Phew! I feel so much better now. If you're feeling the pressure, visit to find out more. Let's build this list together."

It was actually broadcast first on streaming site Hulu as part of their Super Bowl coverage but now sits on the egg's Instagram page.

A link then leads followers on to a website featuring a list of countries and the different mental health services available in those locations.

It’s not clear who paid for the campaign.
