>> you guys know the song "royals."
>> well, it is the breakdown from the new zealand singer lorde . because of the title, everyone assumed it was about these folks. but as it turns out, i love this story, her initial inspiration was this guy. you know who that is? the great george brett , hall of fame baseball player. lorde said she spotted a photo of him with the royals. she thought it would be cool. lorde has been trying to meet him even receiving a signed jersey. tuesday, what happened -- they got a chance to meet. major league baseball tweeting this photo telling lorde she is finally a royal.
>> they play that song so much on the radio. i wonder if george heard it and thought it was about the kansas city royals .
>> he didn't.
>> that makes it even more cool. i was like getting tired of it because they play it so much. now i can hear it all the time. i love it.
