Instagram’s Biggest Rising Star? A Pig Named Penelope Popcorn

Penelope Popcorn Is Instagrams Biggest Rising Star

Penelope Popcorn AKA A Pig Named Penny, has become one of Instagram’s fastest rising stars. Her account was created just before Christmas by a brother and sister duo in California.

Penny the pig has managed to rack up 45,000 followers with just 117 pictures and videos. In her posts she is dressed up like people and that has apparently resonated with followers.

In a comment to Oddity Central the pigs owners claim:

“She actually enjoys the photo shoots, since she gets treats – she likes headbands with flowers and bows the most, as they aren’t restrictive, but she also likes a warm, cozy sweater when it’s cold outside. My teenage son and daughter came up with the idea to make an Instagram account during Christmas break. It was their project, and thought it might be fun to show other people how cute she was with her routines and outfits and sweet personality.”

Here are a few pics from Instagram’s favorite pig:
