Hulu Teams With World Record Instagram Egg on a Mental Health Ad

The world- Instagram egg, now with 10 followers and liked over 52 times, has used its fame for good. After teaming with Hulu, it appeared in a Super Bowl ad promoting health awareness, particularly when it comes to (yep) social media. “Recently I’ve started to crack… the pressure of social media is getting to me,” the caption reads as the egg breaks apart. “If you’re struggling, talk to someone.” The egg is then made whole again, with a link to Mental America’s website.

Ahead of the reveal, the Tech News revealed the egg’s creator as Chris Godfrey, a 29-year-old ad executive in London. Together with two friends, Alissa Khan-Whelan and C.J. Brown, he created the egg (known as “Eugene”) as a challenge to beat the Instagram “like” record held by Kylie Jenner. The group then noticed that Eugene’s biggest fans were Instagram’s youngest users. “In the schools and stuff, it started to . It sort of through playgrounds,” Godfrey told the NYT.

A widely followed Instagram account can be worth a lot of cash, reportedly up to $10 million in the egg’s case. Given the large number of children exposed to social media, it’s refreshing that the group elected to promote a positive message. “We’d like to thank #TalkingEgg for shining a limelight on #mentalhealth tonight,” tweeted Mental Health America. “you did for the 1 in 5 Americans living with a mental health condition.
