WATCH: Justin Timberlake Leaves the Super Bowl Selfie Kid in Tears With Emotional Surprise on Ellen

As heartbreaking as Super Bowl 52 may have been for New England fans, there’s one Patriots supporter who still left U.S. Bank Stadium on TOP of the world.

While February 4th may mark the first Super Bowl win in history for the Philadelphia Eagles, it is now equally famous for birthing the viral superstardom of ‘Selfie Kid’, a.k.a. 13-year-old Ryan McKenna.

After fidgeting with his phone prior to taking the coveted Timberlake selfie at half-time, McKenna became the Internet’s latest meme sensation.

From “Who is Justin Timberlake?” to “Can’t Stop the Feeling lyrics,” Internet trolls had a heyday concocting all kinds of ideas about what McKenna was doing on his phone while the pop star sang just inches away from him.

“Yes, I saw all the memes. I’ve seen those,” said the teen. “My dad told me he was coming up so I had to push out there, but I had the video [on] when I was going out to Justin, and then I had the iPhone 6 and that thing is slow. So it just shut off, and that’s why all the memes formed.”

But while he may have been the butt of a few (million) Twitter jokes, this MVP of the Super Bowl half-time show got the last laugh.

It turns out, ‘Selfie Kid’ not only made a lasting impression on America but also on JT himself.

Timberlake called into The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week where the now internationally famous McKenna was a guest.

“It’s nice to meet you finally,” Timberlake opened as the stunned teen instantly burst into tears.

But the surprise phone call wasn’t ALL Timberlake had in store for the ‘Selfie Kid’ who bears a striking resemblance to a JT mini-me.

Watch as Ryan and his family get hit with a surprise of a lifetime on Ellen that all started with a selfie turned meme-gone-wild…
