The stand out moment of Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl performance was the kid he took a selfie with who appeared to have no idea who the popstar was.
Going viral as the subject of many a meme led Ryan McKenna to shoot to internet super stardom.
Yesterday he appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about the experience but he was met with a surprise.

Also it turns out he did know who the singer was telling the Tv show host “He’s so awesome… He’s just an awesome dancer, singer—everything!”
The grounded kid was delighted to attend the superbowl and described how he cried and said it was “a dream come true” when his dad told him he had tickets two weeks before the game.
McKenna was pushed to tears again yesterday when the Ellen set up a phone call for him with Timberlake on the other end of the line.
“I can’t believe this!” he exclaimed.
The waterworks weren’t set to stop yet with another surprise from Justin on the way!
“I’ll tell you what I want to do: Because it was so unexpected that you came down, and because all of this has happened, I thought to myself, ‘I really want to meet you properly,'”
“I’m going to be coming to TD Garden on tour to play in Boston. I’d like to invite you and your family to come.”
“Thank you so much!” McKenna said as he began to cry happy tears.
“Ryan, I look forward to meeting you… and our second selfie together.”
The surprise comes a week after Ellen gifted her audience $1millon for her 60th birthday.
