Justin Timberlake stuns pushy 'Selfie Kid,' 13, again with Ellen's help

10 February 2018

For the February 9 episode, Ryan McKenna, AKA the Super Bowl selfie kid, stopped by to chat with Ellen Degeneres, 60.

Next time you need free passes to a Justin Timberlake concert and an National Football League game, do what 13-year-old Ryan McKenna did at the Super Bowl: Push your way down a few rows.

The Philadelphia Eagles weren't the only ones to steal the spotlight in Super Bowl LII with their win over the New England Patriots.

"I wanted to end the performance with 'Can't Stop The Feeling, ' just because I see how people respond to that song and cut to Ryan", Timberlake said.

The former *NSYNC member came on the line and greeted the teen, who was then noticeably overcome with emotion.

"The lady told us we were in a good section", he said. Can we also go massively viral over a selfie with JT?

Through tears, McKenna thanked Timberlake for his generosity.

"I saw all the memes", McKenna said.

Ryan pushed his way through the crowd to get closer to the performance when he discovered he was up close and personal with Justin.

Memes emerged of Ryan struggling with his phone, but he explained that he was trying to switch to video.

"It's nice to finally meet you", the pop star said over a speakerphone as the audience cheered and McKenna gasped. I'm sure he will send you money and do all kinds of things.

So the singer offered McKenna and his family tickets to his concert tour stop in Boston later this year. "I look forward to our second selfie together".

"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".

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.
