First, the egg’s identity was traced to an employee at a London advertising agency, according to reports by BuzzFeed News and Mashable. Then in a Hulu special after the Super Bowl, the World Record Egg released a 30-second video.

‘Recently I’ve started to crack,’ it begins, before the egg crumbles. ‘The pressure of social media is getting to me.’

‘If you’re struggling too, talk to someone,’ says the egg, before reanimating and getting its shell back with no cracks. ‘We got this,’ it finishes, before a URL for Mental Health America appears.

The video was posted to the World Record Egg Instagram account on Monday. 

Twitter quickly filled with adoration.

It’s still unknown whether this was planned in advance before the egg’s meteoric rise to stardom or came about after the egg was crowned Instagram royalty. 

World Record Egg didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
