    Most likely cross-promoting it on pages with a lot of fans.

    It's not very surprising, really.
    A page's total number of likes is irrelevant in these situations. If a photo/post is being shared by users, then a sort of avalanche effect follow, because each share will make the post visible to a couple of hundred other people. If the post is really interesting, it wouldn't be strange for a couple hundreds thousand people to share it, and many of those will also like it.

    I once remember seeing a young girl who had posted a video singing an Adele song, which had 300,000 shares. That's how "viral" works mate. :)
