In case you missed it, last September Kanye West sent enemy-turned-frenemie-turned-actual-friend Taylor Swift an insane floral arrangement from popular LA flower shop The Empty Vase. While it's no surprise that the photo was an instant hit, the world enjoyed it so much that it was apparently the second most-liked Instagram photo of 2015.
Reported by NY Daily News last month and confirmed in a proud newsletter from Empty Vase this morning, KanTay's image scored a whopping 2.6 million—million!—likes.
Hey, EV: since Instagram has confirmed that Taylor Swift was last year's most popular person to follow, we suggest sending her some more epic botany to stay on her (very influential) radar. Just sayin'.
