Rapper Lil Wayne Swallows Oreo’s Facebook World Record In 15 MinutesPieter posted in "News". 5 years, 3 months ago
Earlier today, we told you about Oreo‘s attempt to set a Guinness World Record for most “Likes” on a Facebook post in 24 hours. A picture of the popular sandwich cookie did reach the target number of 50,000 likes in about four hours. But then rapper Lil Wayne ambushed the orchestrated attempt on a record with a simple status update via his iPhone:
everyone, please “Like” this post. I’m trying to break the Guinness World Record for most “Likes” on a post in 24 hours. Let’s get it!!!
Less than 15 minutes later, Lil Wayne’s status update had already received 75,000 likes as opposed to Oreo’s 60,000. And at the time of writing, he tripled the cookie’s number of likes.
We surely hope the American rapper, who is predetermined to put the world record to his name, has gotten in touch with Guinness first.
Thanks to refacers SiX and Asdsa for the heads up!
UPDATE: At 8:30 PM (ET), Lil Wayne still leads the way with 400,000+ likes compared to 100k.
