Justin Timberlake surprises Super Bowl selfie kid with tour tickets

Justin Timberlake surprises Super Bowl selfie kid with tour tickets

"My dad told me two weeks before and I just started crying", he told host Ellen Degeneres. He also explained that the memes were created since McKenna was having phone troubles.

DeGeneres told McKenna that he kind of reminds her of Timberlake and then things really took off. "I couldn't believe it".

McKenna stopped by the Ellen show, wearing his Patriots jersey of course, and spoke about the moment that turned him into an instant meme.

Tracks like "Can't Stop the Feeling!" and "Filthy", which is the first single off of his new album Man of the Woods, saw huge leaps in download numbers, with the latter selling an estimated 6,000 downloads on February 4.

DeGeneres asked how the selfie came to be and Timberlake joked, "I knew I wanted to end the show with 'Can't Stop the Feeling, ' just because I see how people respond to that song-and then cut to Ryan".

A couple minutes into McKenna and Ellen's conversation about the photo, Ellen surprised a very shocked McKenna with a phone call from Timberlake.




DeGeneres continued, "Everybody loves Justin". When Timberlake came on the line, McKenna was clearly both overjoyed and in shock.

HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Ryan and Justin's "meeting" on Ellen?

As if the opportunity to take a picture with Timberlake during the Super Bowl and to receive a phone call from him while appearing on "Ellen" weren't enough, Timberlake then dropped the news that he was inviting McKenna and his family to see him perform live in concert in Boston. McKenna couldn't contain his excitement when DeGeneres handed him the tickets.

Before the segment ended, Timberlake had one last message for McKenna.

But that wasn't all, the National Football League piled on the love with four VIP tickets to a Patriots home game next season and four pre-game field passes.

"I look forward to our second selfie together", Timberlake promised.
