Oreo Tries To Set Guinness Record for Facebook Likes

“Twist….. Lick….. Dunk……” (With a class of milk aside)

Do you what this phrase is about?  Exactly. I’m talking about the Oreo biscuit. I want to share some interesting facts with you.

On 15th of February 2011 the Oreo company wants to establish a new Guinness Worlds Records entry for most Facebook likes. The goal was 45,000 likes within a day. The Oreo started at 9pm asking the fans to set the ‘likes’ the following post :  “Like’ this post to join other Oreo fans around the world in setting a Guinness World Record for most ‘likes’ to a post in 24 hours. Oreo is the world’s favorite cookie, and with your help, it will be the most ‘liked.”

However, after few hours the Rapper Lil Wayne challenge the Oreo biscuit by announcing to the world that he is also going after the Guinness Worlds Records for most Facebook likes in 24 hours.

So what is the result? Who win the battle? The result is Lil Wayne. After the 24 hours, Oreo only had 114,619 likes meanwhile Lil Wayne had 588,243 likes. It must be quite disappointing for the Oreo fans hence we have to congrats OREO. Because it was honored as the first brand to attempt and set the Guinness World Records for the “Most ‘likes’ on a Facebook post in 24 hours.”  It has inspired others to create or break the World Record including me. We could think of something different which others have not been thought and try to create a Guinness World Record. Who knows? One day my name or yours can be in the book.

Do you know that Oreo was introduced in 1912?  And it is almost has been 100 years in the market hence still in the leading track. Oreo sandwich cookie is American’s most popular cookie. Besides that, approximately 20.5million cookies are eaten every day by the world consumers.  Do you ever count how many flowers are stamped on an Oreo cookie when you are eating it? Each side of the cookie has twelve flowers and each flower has four pedals. Along the packing slogan is “Milk’s favorite cookies” and it’s true.  Don’t you want to be a ‘dunker’?
