It all started with Kylie’s insane number of likes and a simple thought by Chris Godfrey, which is, Could something as universal and simple as an egg be great enough to beat that record? Low and behold, the challenge began, and Instagram became too small for both the egg and Kylie.
Kylie Jenner’s post about little Stormi holding her lovely thumb got over 19 million likes, and this was the post that fueled the idea.

Mr. Godfrey explained: “An egg has no gender, race or religion. An egg is an egg, and it’s universal.”
