Ellen DeGeneres and Bradley Cooper have joined forces in hopes of defending their coveted Twitter record – a preventative measure that's at risk of being taken away by a teenager desperate for Wendy's chicken nuggets.
Cooper, who hails from Philadelphia, joined the comedian and host of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" earlier this week to put out a PSA.
The two are referring to a high school student who tweeted at the fast food chain asking how many retweets he would need for a year-long supply of free chicken nuggets. Their response? Eighteen million.
That's a threat to DeGeneres, who currently holds the record for most retweets for her famous 2014 Oscar selfie which has 3.3. million retweets.
The high schooler, Carter Wilkerson, currently has 2.9 million retweets.

"If you think I'm going to lose that record to some chicken nugget kid, you are out of your cluckin' mind," she said.
Cooper joined DeGeneres.
"We put our heart and our soul into that selfie," he said. "I had to hold my arms out ... for about 35-45 seconds, my biceps were shaking," he said.
Though, Wendy's may be getting the final word.
