I'm not kidding, this isn't a joke! He's a fictional character... actually, scratch that.. He's a TOY! This was all accomplished by one businessman named Wellington Campos, a marketing manager based in Brazil). This guy actually made one of Disney's most recognizable character's into an internet celebrity!
I'm still having trouble believing that Disney's Toy Story - Woody has way more followers than the President! Let's all take a step back and think about this for one minute.
How did he go from this?
Nonetheless, I do find this pretty cool that a toy from a children's movie became a huge star on Instagram. It's reported that Woody is the 22nd most followed individual on Instagram (5,358,252 followers), the most followed non-celebrity with a non-brand account and his numbers fall between young pop stars One Direction and Demi Lovato's account.
But, I do have good news for people that might've lost faith in humanity because there are individuals following a toy on Instagram! This was stated by Buzzfeed - "A quick search showed that as of eight months ago, 70% of his over 1 million Twitter followers were likely fake. But it’s unclear how many of his Instagram followers are legitimate accounts."
More than likely some of his followers on Instagram are fake as well.
Here's a look at some of Woody's Instagram photos:
