Speaking to Huston Chronicle, Randle said that he found out about #MrStealYourGrandpa after his daughter saw it trending on Twitter.

"I was amazed at first. Now, I'm overwhelmed. I appreciate all the great comments," he said. "I've always dressed like this. I've just been wearing things a little tighter, that's all."
