With Any Other Celebrity, This Would Be Embarrassing as Hell...

Posted by on Tue, Jun 19, 2012 at 3:18 PM

...but because it's a little Ryan Gosling singing a cover of Michael Bolton's cover of "When a Man Loves a Woman" and dancing to C+C Music Factory in a Mormon kid's talent show, it's somehow even more adorable.

As a straight man, I should hate Ryan Gosling. But I can't. I just can't! (Sob.)

It's imposible. No one can hate him.

I'm sure I'd be dazzled by your wit if I knew who Ryan Gosling was.

No one can hate Gosling except for that one little boy who was his closest competition at the Mouseketeer audition. He can hate him.

I hated Drive. but I didn't hate Gosling. It's not his fault that movie was so shitty and overrated.

1: A mormon kids' talent show???
2: So he's gay, right? I only know him from that one movie where I thought he was Jake Gyllenhall until halfway through it. Blue something?

@3: Is that your way of showing how highbrow and cultured you are? I'm sure if he were an obscure novelist or poet -- as opposed to one of the biggest draws in Hollywood -- you'd know him instantly and be sure to show off said knowledge.

Why even mention Michael Bolton? It's Percy Sledge's song, and it always will be, regardless of who else covers it.

I met him once years back. I didn't know he was famous or anything at the time. But he seemed a very genuinely nice sort of polite young person. The kind of kid who is polite to old people.

Adorable! He has moves for such a little guy.

We all crush on him.

I want to have his Canadian babies.

@3 -- You're a sad little liar, sweetie.

He looks pretty much like every other Mormon kid to me, that isn't intended as an insult to Mormon kids, I just don't think he's more cute because he grew up to be Ryan Gosling than if he grew up to be some other dude.
