When Justin Timberlake took a pic with a lucky kid who happened to be in the Super Bowl audience during the singer鈥檚 halftime show, that teen, Ryan McKenna, immediately聽became a viral phenomenon, whom the internet crowned聽#SelfieKid. This week, the 13-year-old sat down to chat about the wild event on聽The Ellen DeGeneres Show聽鈥 where a surprise was waiting from JT himself.

McKenna said聽that just going to the Super Bowl was pretty much 鈥渁 dream come true.鈥 Everything that happened afterward was beyond what he expected.

When聽DeGeneres asked if he knew that Timberlake would be heading up into the stands during his performance, McKenna admitted, 鈥淣o, so we didn鈥檛 know. The lady told us that we were in a good section, but we had no idea that Justin was going to be there.鈥

He then clarified that he had actually been a few rows back when the star came up the steps, and that he had to do a little pushing to make his way to the singer鈥檚 side. Once there, he whipped out his phone to take a selfie.

That鈥檚 when the world witnessed the聽teen fumble a bit with his phone, which led to his internet fame. 鈥淵eah, so, all the memes, I鈥檝e seen those,鈥 he told DeGeneres. Many of the jokes revolved around McKenna鈥檚 imaginary Google searches, such as 鈥淲ho is Justin Timberlake鈥 or 鈥淟yrics to 鈥楥an鈥檛 Stop the Feeling.'鈥 But聽it turns out that聽he聽was just dealing with a slow phone. Too relatable.

McKenna is enjoying his moment in the spotlight, though. And DeGeneres and Timberlake teamed up to give聽him something even better than the selfie he scored at the Super Bowl.聽The singer called in to the show to offer聽a special gift to聽McKenna and his family, and it moved聽the young fan to tears. Check out the awesome moment in the video below.
