Meet the man who's challenging Ellen's Oscar selfie record

Ellen’s Oscars selfie now has over three million retweets. This man wants MORE.

HANG ON TO your hats everyone – this man has just thrown down the gauntlet to Ellen DeGeneres, saying he wants to beat her Oscar selfie record.

The Oscar host’s now legendary selfie, featuring a gaggle of A-listers, managed to break Twitter and surpass Obama’s ‘Four More Years’ tweet as the most retweeted of all time.

Currently, the number of retweets stands at a whopping 3.2 million.

Last night Texan Terry Shipman posted this photo of him and his two extremely cute puppies to his then-20 followers, in a bid to beat Ellen’s Oscar record.

The internet immediately obliged him.

We think the adorable dogs are helping his cause enormously.

At the moment, Terry’s selfie has over 44,000 retweets. Still a long way to go before he beats Ellen’s mammoth record, but he’s got the support of Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen:


And his son is 100% behind him.


Go on, do your good deed for today and give old Terry a retweet. Make his dream come true.
