We all have embarrassing videos of ourselves doing goofy talent shows as kids. But Ryan Gosling’s video is about to go viral. Wait until you catch the Drive star dancing to C&C Music Factory. A must-see.
Surprise, Ryan Gosling! That video you probably were hoping no one would ever see has surfaced. And you thought Drive showed us a different side of the talented actor. Wait until you see his latest video.
OK, so it’s actually an old video from 1991 that Gosling probably wishes stayed buried. But Gosling apparently entertained crowds at a Mormon talent show at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Cornwall, Ontario, and the footage of his performance has to be the greatest video you’ll see today.
The clip was discovered by Ontario, Canada native Gary Saldivia, who shared a tape with OMG Yahoo.
“It was collecting dust in the garage,” he tells Yahoo. “[Gosling] had some moves even as a kid!”
As you can see in the video below, the Crazy, Stupid, Love star had serious pipes, as well. The clip kicks off with Gosling serenading the audience with the ballad “When a Man Loves a Woman.” A quick edits finds the 10-year-old star dancing (amazingly) to C&C Music Factory’s “Everybody Dance Now.”
Prepare to be amazed:
The talent show was held two full years before Gosling became a cast member on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club, where he co-starred opposite Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. Of course, since then, Gosling has entertained the world with films like Half Nelson, Blue Valentine and Lars & the Real Girl. His next picture is a period crime thriller titled The Gangster Squad.
But there’s no way it can be half as entertaining as this. At least Gosling knows that much like Channing Tatum, if this whole “acting” thing doesn’t work out, he has a career in dance waiting in the wings. Everybody dance now.
