  • Blown away¬†Super Bowl Selfie Kid Ryan Mc Kenna got a surprise during his appearance on The Ellen De Generes Show on Friday

Sunday River Ski Resort in ME tell The Blast they're giving 13-year-old Ryan McKenna and his family unrestricted season passes to the mountain for the rest of this year and the next after he wore one of their sweatshirts when he took the selfie with JT.

"My dad told me two weeks before and I just started crying", he told host Ellen Degeneres.

The teenager said that he was completely unaware that he was seated in the section where the "Can't Stop The Feeling!" singer would perform, he was just surprised as anybody would be into the crowd to close the show. "The lady told us we were in a good section, but we had no idea that Justin was gonna be there", said McKenna. The Prince moment of the set was accompanied with images from the singer's legendary 2007 Super Bowl halftime show, with television graphics adding swathes of purple and the singer's famous glyph symbol over the arena.

On Friday's episode, Ryan McKenna explained to the presenter exactly what happened on Sunday when he became known as the "Super Bowl selfie kid".

Through tears, McKenna thanked Timberlake for his generosity.




"I really want to meet you properly, so I am going to coming to TD Gardens on tour to play in Boston".

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". McKenna couldn't contain his excitement when DeGeneres handed him the tickets. "I got myself there, I pushed through".

Ryan, 13, certainly got what he deserved as he admitted he had to push through and nudge people out of the way in order to get the shot with Justin that went viral.

McKenna and his family also received a gift basket from the New England Patriots and the National Football League, which included game tickets, field passes and some team gear.
