Giddy fans who braved the frigid cold in Minneapolis crowded into U.S. Bank Stadium. Eagles fans filled the air inside chanting " E-A-G-L-E-S, Eagles!" (Feb. 4)

Thirteen-year-old Ryan McKenna got a selfie with Justin Timberlake during his Super Bowl LII halftime show, and the internet lost its mind. McKenna was dubbed "#selfiekid" on Twitter and quickly became an Internet star.

McKenna appeared on ABC's Good Morning America Monday morning to talk about the experience.

He still can't believe how the moment blew up on social media. "I got like 8,000 more followers on Snapchat."

People on Twitter joked that the kid will be the talk of his school tomorrow.

People also wondered why he was on his phone right after taking his photo.

McKenna cleared up the confusion on Good Morning America. "I had a video going and my phone shut off. That's why I was on my phone." 

He also assured the hosts that he knows who Justin Timberlake is. "I love him. He's my favorite singer, so I had to take a selfie with him."
