Burberry is coming for World Record Egg’s wig

Chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci gets in on the yolk

ICYMI, yesterday the world lost its damn mind, collectively working together to dethrone Kylie Jenner from the title of the most liked image on Instagram ever. Instead of a celebrity though, her opponent was simply an egg – the second time the Jenner has been foiled by one in her lifetime. 

Now, joining in the runnings, Burberry has also posted an egg to its Instagram account, teasing the release of its SS19 collection – the debut for Riccardo Tisci as chief creative officer. Following the very chic egg, the British house posted a picture of a Bambi statuette, nodding to the “Why did they kill Bambi’ tee from the show. 

A little shy of the almost 40 million likes the OG egg has racked up, the Burberry egg has amassed nearly 30k likes overnight. It is a very pretty egg though, despite not having the tan and freckled complexion of the original. 

While you ponder who might be next to post an egg to their account, we’re patiently awaiting World Record Egg’s announcement to run in the 2020 US election.
