A simplistic and ordinary brown egg has shattered the past Instagram record for most likes, previously held by Kylie Jenner, which had 18 million.

The picture was posted Jan. 4 with the caption “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.”

The previous world record was an image of newborn, Stormi Jenner, posted on Feb. 6, 2018. Even though the picture was a mere image of a baby, the egg has yet to show mercy, continuing the flood of likes even days later. After surpassing Jenner’s post on Sunday, the egg has racked up 46 million likes as of Jan. 16.

Jenner decided to have some fun after the fact by posting a video of her cracking and attempting to cook an egg on hot concrete.

Instagram also showed their approval of the post commenting, “Eggcellent work.”

When the account owner was asked what’s next for the egg, he replied, “I’ve got a few ideas.”
