His IG blew up and Good Morning America booked him.

Interested to see where this goes being all 'right place, right time' with camera phone in hand. Wish him the best with his random stardom.

But really want to know more about the guy with the two phones behind him (not really). *sigh*

I'm sure he's a local kid who won his way in spending his last 15 cents on a Nut Roll with a Super Bowl ticket hidden inside the wrapper.  I hope his grandpa is ok.

I seriously thought he was Katy Perry's backpack boy and he was going to join Timberlake in doing his backpack dance.

Way to go down in history, loser.  JT is gyrating right in front of you and you're on facebook.

Has anyone started a gofundme for him yet?

WTF? That's not a selfie. Do words not mean anything anymore?

When you take your hands, outsttreach them away from your body, and take a picture of yourself, I mean.  That is what the millenials call a selfie.

It's over, the internet has him now. By the age of 18 he'll be bronze, full of synthol, and trolling Weinstein parties for a bit part.
 
2018-02-05 09:44:00 AM  
We'd like to find him and interview him,

Why, he is just some random person at the game or it was completely set up and he is connected. Get off the damn phone and at least look like you are enjoying yourself.

You spent your "15 minutes of fame" moment staring at your phone, kid.  Sorry 'bout your luck.

Perspective distortion. How does it work?

He got the selfie, then immediately Googled "who is justin timberlake?'. While Justin Timberlake was still singing behind him.

I'm not a hater of JT, but that performance was horrid.

I think the biggest part of the problem was the sound mix.  Which I really don't understand.  I was under the impression that the audio portion of the performance was grabbed straight from the sound board so it shouldn't have been subject to the whims of the acoustics in the room.

Perfect. This picture is not his selfie. It's a picture of him taking a selfie. That's my point.

ok. guys. I will step away for a day or two.

lack of warmth
You really think that many actual Eagles fans attended the Super Bowl? I doubt few actual fans of the two teams playing are in attendance. More like all those people who got tickets months in advance bought jerseys after they found out who will be playing. The fact so many bought Eagles jerseys should be an indication of how tired the rest of the nation is of Patriot fans. Although, no one will buy Vikings jerseys without actually living such a horrible state of Minnesota.

Username checks out, come on over and see what fresh water tastes like.

Oh I get it. You're being obtuse because the picture in the article isn't THE "selfie".
You're right, it's not. But TFA didn't claim it was.

The point of it was that they were looking for the selfie they saw him taking, which he hadn't posted yet.
 

They didn't say "this is a selfie" They were saying "help us find the selfie the kid in this picture took"
Not sure why that's so difficult for you to understand. It's really pretty simple.

If you ever catch me searching desperately to find out the identity of some clown who selfied himself with Justin Timberlake , any other pop star, any entertainer,  any sports star, or any politician, then you are  encouraged to shoot me in the head from behind immediately because my life is over anyway.

This offer void if some idiot is paying me do the search. My dignity and sanity have often been compromised for decent pay
 
2018-02-05 12:17:41 PM  
Can we not? We all know how this goes now. The kid goes on TV, everyone says how coll this is, and then 3 days later we find he was posting antisemitic memes on "Yo-Jabba" or some other kind of messaging app no one over the age of 14 has heard of, and we ruin this kid's life before he even hits puberty. He's not a public figure, he was on TV for 8 seconds, just leave it be.

Probably true, but at the end when my four year-old yelled, "Hey! It's the song from Trolls!" I realized that it wasn't for me.

As far as the kid goes? He's wearing a shirt that says "Maine" and sitting in a $3500 Super Bowl seat. Pretty sure he was gonna do all right with or without JT.

So true, it doesn't make a difference in our day.  However for that kid, I wouldn't blame him if he had a poster made of the selfie.  No other kid would have that poster, and for him, that is cool.
