Terry Shipman, a 65-year old man from Beaumont, Texas is on a mission to get more retweets of his selfie with a pair of adorable dogs than Ellen DeGeneres got of her star-studded Oscars selfie.
Shipman told Buzzfeed, he was just having fun with his son when he originally Tweeted the silly selfie. But when Shipman’s son, J. Michael, and his friends started retweeting the photo, it took on a life of its own.
Do you think Shipman and his furry friends can top Ellen’s tweet? He only needs just over 3 million more retweets….
