Timberlake explained, "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".

Timberlake said, "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.'" The singer went on to say, "I'm going to be coming to TD Garden on tour to play in Boston".

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

Timberlake ended the phone call by telling McKenna, "Ryan, I look forward to meeting you and our second selfie together".

'Thank you so much, ' Ryan cried.

Timberlake then invited McKenna and his family to the MA date of his Man Of The Woods tour, which kicks off next month.

"We had no idea that Justin was gonna be there [in our section]", Ryan, sporting his New England Patriots jersey, told host Ellen.

DeGeneres also presented McKenna with a New England Patriots VIP experience, courtesy of the National Football League, including tickets to a home game next season and four pre-game field passes. That was McKenna who instantly rocketed to internet fame and spawned some of the Super Bowl's best memes after his moment in the spotlight.

In an interview from January, Timberlake opened up about that notorious Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction that took place while he performed with Jackson and admitted that he "stumbled" in the aftermath. It makes McKenna cry as it was a huge gift for him.

"Oh my God, I can't believe this", Ryan said. "I was there with him", he said.

There is one sure-fire way to get onto The Ellen Show as a non-famous person, and that's by doing something that goes massively viral. "So it just shut off, and that's why all the memes formed".

Luckily McKenna gets a second chance at a selfie soon.
