Here’s the super awkward selfie Justin Timberlake took with that kid last night
Our king of memes
If I'm being completely honest, I did not watch even one single second of the game last night. Unless by "game" you mean JT halftime show, in which case I watched absolutely all of it. Why? Because I'm just in it for the memes.
So when Justin paused to take a selfie with an extremely confused little boy in the middle of "Can't Stop the Feeling," my heart fluttered for a second — I knew it was my time to Shine Online.
The boy, 13-year-old Ryan McKenna from Massachusetts, had no idea that any girl in their 20s or 30s would've given a left arm to be in his position ten years ago, and it made me feel happy and old all at the same time.
It was kind of like when something really important is happening so you have to turn your phone back on because you shut it down to save power.
Here's the actual selfie

When Ryan saw Justin walking up to him he said, he knew he had to take his shot. “I just thought to myself, ‘I’ll never get this opportunity again in my whole life,'” he said. “I just went for it." And in that moment he also went viral.
But no matter how cute the photo actually is, the internet has gotten their hands on it, which means it's over.
Twitter is already in love with him

That kid who awkwardly attempts to take a selfie when confronted with Justin Timberlake at the Super Bowl instead of actually enjoying the moment is the icon of my generation.

Plus, he's on three morning shows today.
Welcome to the rest of your life, Ry. You arrived to the Super Bowl a normal kid and left an internet sensation — the 2018 American Dream.
