So… this is a Hawaiian fan names Michelle @blondiehart She made this amazing #partygoblin shirt but the back… is very special. She thought the (insane) song I sing before #gameofthrone was a real song. She took my lyrics, ones I sort of remake up every episode and sing on Snapchat, and put them on a shirt. This was VERY special! #maui #eldermillennial #veryspecial
