Finally, the meaning behind this extremely popular record-breaking egg has been revealed.

It first appeared on Instagram last month quickly becoming the most liked photo on Instagram at 52.2 million likes, surpassing Kylie Jenner’s post of her daughter.

The account @world_record_egg, now has 10 million followers and was created by Chris Godfrey, a British ad agent, to pursue the Instagram like record.

The account posted photos of the egg with a crack that becomes progressively larger with each photo.

The final post coming on Sunday when this video produced with Hulu showed up during the Super Bowl.  The egg blaming the pressure of social media for causing it to crack, and encouraging anyone else struggling to reach out for help. 

The video promotes talkingegg.info, a website that contains links to mental health organizations in various parts of the world.
