Teejay Stainer, Eminem

Facebook

Eminem's music has inspired people of all ages all around the world—including one 10-year-old British superfan whose customized prosthetic legs have the rapper's face on them!

Teejay Stainer's parents posted this picture of their son to Facebook in the hopes of getting Slim Shady's attention. As you can see, Teejay's Eminem-emblazoned limbs are on display in the pic, and he's also holding up a sign that reads, "These are my Eminem legs I've had made. My wish is for Eminem to see them."

The photo did snag Eminem's attention, and as Teejay's parents explained to the U.K.'s Daily Echo, their son was "amazed" to receive a personalized package at home from the artist he calls his "hero."

So what did Slim send? An autographed copy of his 2010 album, Recovery, with a message that said, "To Teejay, I saw your pic and read your message! Thanks for the support!"

Teejay told the Daily Echo he thinks Eminem "sent me that album in particular because of the recovery that I've made."

The boy's mother explained that Teejay admires Eminem because he "is someone that has come from nothing and made something of himself."

As for any naysayers who point out Eminem's lyrics can be less than kid-friendly? Well, Teejay's mom acknowledges "there are swear words in the songs." But as she pointed out, her son "likes the tracks because of their meanings and we've never heard him swear."

On another note, look back at that time Eminem was on The Soup in the video below.
