Other twenty one pilots news

Twenty one pilots frontman Tyler Joseph spoiled a fan after he asked them to give him their Ned plush doll at a show. 

At the Bandito tour gig in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday, Joseph saw a fan in the front row holding the doll and stopped the show. 

“Hey, can I have that?” he asked. 

Then, the fan handed it over, and Joseph explained why he wanted the doll so badly.

"My little niece - her name is Mia, and she’s a little over one year old. Whenever she gets sick or she’s tired, all she asks for - I’m not even making this up - all she asks for is Ned. Over and over again,” he said. “So my sister will show her, my little niece, the video of ‘Chlorine’ and it calms her down right away. And so thank you so much for giving this to me, because I’m going to give her this - she’s always wanted her own real Ned."

Then he asked the fan where they got the doll, to which they replied that they made it. He also made sure that the fan would be treated with a ton of TOP merch. 

You can see the video of the whole ordeal below.
