Even if you didn’t watch the Super Bowl, you’ve heard about the “Selfie Kid”.

13 year old Ryan McKenna went viral after he took selfies with Justin Timberlake during the Super Bowl halftime show, sparking plenty of memes of the memorable moment.



And not even a week later, Ellen Degeneres invited him onto the show for yet another surprise from Justin Timberlake himself.

As Ryan was explaining exactly what happened that night, including a stadium worker telling him and his family they were “in a good section”, Ellen had Justin waiting to speak to him on the phone, nearly bringing the young boy to tears.


Justin Timberlake is the best guy ever

After a short chat and reflecting on the performance, Timberlake then offered McKenna and his family VIP tickets to his concert tour stop in Boston later this year so they can ‘officially’ meet.

But that’s not all! Ellen also gifted four VIP tickets to a Patriots home game next season and four pre-game field passes. It pays to take the selfie, huh?!
