Justin Timberlake Brings Selfie Kid To Tears

It’s safe to say no one is having a better month than 'Selfie Kid', the teenager who took a selfie with Justin Timberlake at his Super Bowl performance last weekend. 

Ryan McKenna is still not done with his press coverage. 


Ryan appeared on The Ellen Show this week, where he got to give his side of the story. And to clarify those memes floating around, yes he does know who Justin Timberlake is, and no he wasn't on social media or Google for that matter. His phone shut off and was trying to turn it back on to get some selfies with Justin. He said:

"Yeah, so all the memes, I've seen those. I had a video that I had that I was ... because my dad told me that he was coming up, so I pushed up there. But I had the video of when I was going to Justin, and then, I have the iPhone 6 and so that thing's slow, so it just shut off, and that's why all the memes formed. Like 'Who is Justin Timberlake?' and 'What are the words to CAN'T STOP THE FEELING!?' But I had to get the camera back out to get the selfie with Justin."

Then, Ellen had a surprise for Ryan. She said "There's someone on the phone that wants to say hi to you right now," and Justin said "Ryan?" Justin went on to talk about the viral moment, and said that he wanted to meet Ryan properly at his tour stop in Boston, and offered four tickets to the show.

Afterwards, Ryan posted another selfie to Instagram ... this time of himself with Ellen, writing, "Thank you so much @theellenshow for having me on...I will never forget this moment for the rest of my life."
