Instagram egg cracks open, revealing a wholesome mental health message
The world-famous egg appears on Hulu with a surprising story.
Jackson RyanFormer Science Editor
Jackson Ryan was CNET's science editor, and a multiple award-winning one at that. Earlier, he'd been a scientist, but he realized he wasn't very happy sitting at a lab bench all day. Science writing, he realized, was the best job in the world -- it let him tell stories about space, the planet, climate change and the people working at the frontiers of human knowledge. He also owns a lot of ugly Christmas sweaters.
Mental Health America thanked the egg for "shining a limelight on #mentalhealth."
We can't say we expected the saga to end this way, but we're glad that it did. Of all the ways this could have gone, such a wholesome,simple, positive message about mental health is pretty much the best outcome. 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.
