It now has over 145,000 retweets - a long way from Ellen's three million record.
He told NBC's Today show: "I took that photograph, tweeted it to my son, then he and his roommate retweeted it a couple times, and then their phones started blowing up...I was just totally amazed. It was just kind of as a lark,” he said.
But now a cruise company from his hometown have offered him a holiday if he can reach 1.5 million retweets. They have also started the hashtag #sendterrytotheislands to get him there.

A woman was arrested after she was found sleeping in a bedroom at a home rented by Justin Bieber.
Qianying Zhao, 23, was found at the home, owned by music producer Dallas Austin, yesterday Atlanta police said.
She reportedly told officers that she had come to attend Bieber's birthday party - which was held earlier in the week at another location - and entered the unoccupied home through an unlocked door.
Ms Zhao, who faces a charge of criminal trespass, said she was Bieber's friend, but investigators believe she is just one of millions of fans who follow the pop superstar on Twitter.
Earlier, US police controversially released a video of Bieber providing a urine sample following his arrest for driving under the influence in January.

Simon Cowell says he was "born to be a dad" and has hinted that he may have more children so that his son Eric, who was born on Valentine's Day, can have a brother or sister.
The 54-year-old X-Factor judge told Extra: "I wouldn't rule out (more children). Well, I got (Yorkshire terriers) Squiddly and Diddly, and I couldn't imagine Squiddly or just Diddly... I had a brother when I was younger, so I kind of think it's cool to have two or three ... two."
Cowell, who was interviewed by his ex-girlfriend Terri Seymour for the magazine, revealed that he cried at his son's birth after dashing to New York from London - where he was filming Britain's Got Talent auditions - to be at girlfriend Lauren Silverman's side.
He admitted he was so apprehensive about becoming a father that he asked his partner, "'What if I like the dogs more than him?', because I've never had a baby before, and she said, 'You're gonna be absolutely fine', and then literally within seconds of him being born, I got it."

Bailey, who won the last series of the ITV talent show, said her forthcoming tour has had to be rescheduled after discovering the news.
She told the newspaper: "I was really upset because I thought I'd let everyone at my management and the record label down.
"But they were really good about it. I was going to go on tour solo at the end of October - but I have managed to move it until January."
