Thirteen-year-old Ryan McKenna said on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday that his phone "exploded" with messages and phone calls and he now has thousands of new social media followers.

Ryan says he was unprepared for his brush with fame. Timberlake, he said, "just came up and I just like jumped right in there with him."

He got a shout out from his school, the private Derby Academy in Hingham south of Boston, which tweeted out one of McKenna's photos.

Ryan is also getting some free skiing. He was wearing a sweatshirt bearing the name of Maine's Sunday River ski resort, which offered him a free season pass.
