Get Stuff We Love
One groom-to-be plans on fulfilling a childhood dream for his wedding day, dressing up like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, all because he got 100,000 retweets.
"I really, truly do love the Ninja Turtles," Nic Vargus told TODAY's Sheinelle Jones in the Orange Room Saturday via Skype. "Always have since I was a kid."
It all started for Vargus and his girlfriend, Lindsey Oakes, who both live in San Francisco, two days ago, when Vargus shared a simple tweet.
"My girlfriend says if this tweet gets 100k RTs, she'll let me dress up as a ninja turtle on our wedding day," Vargus wrote.
And with the help of celebrities like Seth Rogen and the band Bastille, Vargus not only met that goal, but as of Saturday morning exceeded it, with more than 120,000 retweets and counting.
Vargus' girlfriend has taken the news in stride, telling TODAY that she was sure they would figure out how to incorporate a Ninja Turtles outfit into their special day with ease.
"We haven't figured out the details yet, but we'll figure something out the works for both of us," Oakes said.
Of course, before said details can be arranged, Vargus will have to propose.
One of Oakes' few tweet to date simply says: "No ring, no Ralph."
