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.
