The man behind the worldâ€™s most famous egg, who broke Kylie Jennerâ€™s record of â€˜having the most likesâ€™ is finally out of its shell. Meet Chris Godfrey, the man behind the dethroning of Kylie. â€˜â€™An egg has no gender, race or religion. An egg is an egg, itâ€™s universalâ€™â€™ says Godfrey after finally unveiling himself.
According to reports, Chris Godfrey is a 29-year-old advertising executive from London who has been credited with creating the viral storm with the help of his friends Alissa Khan-Whelan, 26, and C.J. Brown, 29 to break Kylieâ€™s record. The trio said that they hatched a plan after a picture of Kylie Jenner had been liked almost 19 million. On January 4, their plan began into motion and overwhelming their picture of a lightly speckled brown egg with a sheer white backdrop got a like over 52 million times, dethroning Kylie.
Khan-WhelanÂ told the New York Times that the group decided to â€œput any speculation to bedâ€ by revealing their identities to the masses.
Godfrey told theÂ TimesÂ that the past few weeks had been â€œcrazyâ€ and a â€œreal journey.â€ â€œItâ€™s not really about me,â€ he said. â€œItâ€™s just about the egg and sort of where we can take it and what we can do with it.â€ However, he did admit the success had been a â€œfluke.â€ â€œBut itâ€™s a fluke that caught the worldâ€™s attention. Itâ€™s what you do with that attention that counts,â€ he added.Â
