"It's nice to meet you, finally", Timberlake said.

"Oh my God, I can't believe this", McKenna said, tearing up the moment Timberlake said his name.

Justin Timberlake reduced "SelfieKid" to tears with a surprise phone call during his interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"Selfie Kid" Ryan McKenna appears on he Ellen DeGeneres Show.

McKenna turned up on Friday's episode of Ellen to talk about the surreal experience, when the host revealed that Timberlake was on the phone and wanted to speak to him, as reported by ET Online. Can we also go massively viral over a selfie with JT?

Ryan pushed his way through the crowd to get closer to the performance when he discovered he was up close and personal with Justin.

Typing "lobster" now easier than eating them thanks to emoji
In what is definitely the biggest news to hit the state of ME possibly ever, there will soon be an official lobster emoji. The Unicode Consortium launched in 1988 with a mission to create global standards for software and data.

"I saw all the memes", McKenna said. "I was elbowing people".

Once there, McKenna struggled to get his phone to work to capture the selfie seen around the world.

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. "So it just shut off, and that's why all the memes formed". I'm sure he will send you money and do all kinds of things. McKenna was then further overwhelmed when Timberlake presented his gift to him: The singer said he wants to properly meet McKenna, so he and his got VIP passes to the MA stop of his Man Of The Woods tour (and the National Football League also gave them a nice package of goodies that includes tickets and special access to a Patriots home game next season). "I look forward to meeting you and our second selfie together", Timberlake concluded in his surprise call.

"Thank you so much", McKenna overwhelmingly said as DeGeneres handed over four VIP tickets.

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.
