Justin Timberlake Surprises Super Bowl Selfie Kid on 'Ellen'

Share

Ryan told Ellen how he got himself to Timberlake at the Minnesota game: "I pushed through".

In case you missed it, Ryan became a viral sensation after he was seen fiddling with his phone and trying to take a selfie with Justin Timberlake as he sang "Can't Stop the Feeling" to close out his performance at the Super Bowl.

"I can't believe this", he said.

Enjoying the perks of new-found fame, Ryan taped an interview for Ellen's Friday show earlier this week, and spoke about the moment he got the snap.

Timberlake said, "It's nice to meet you, finally".

DeGeneres also announced that the National Football League gave them a flawless experience with the New England Patriots. Can we also go massively viral over a selfie with JT?

Ryan McKenna became an instant celebrity after this year's Super Bowl. "And I got there and I was there with him". "I had to get the camera back up to get the selfie". "The iPhone 6 - that thing's slow".

Then DeGeneres dropped the bomb. "Now you are a part of his life, and I'm sure he'll send you money", Ellen commented as Justin laughed over the phone.

"I'll tell you what I want to do, because it was so unexpected that he came down and, because all of this has happened, I thought to myself, I really want to meet you properly". "Do you have anything for him, Justin?". Timberlake then invited McKenna and his family to come meet him backstage during his tour stop in Boston, which made McKenna tear up.

And the 37-year-old hunk isn't the only one who gave the teenager a gift as National Football League continued to spread the love by giving him a VIP experience to a Patriots home game next season, as well as four tickets to a game, and four pre-game field passes.

While Ellen had the teen recount the moment for her audience, she was holding back a major surprise until she told McKenna someone wanted to say hi on the phone-you guessed it, Justin Timberlake.
