Here's Ryan Gosling singing "When a Man Loves a Woman," at a Mormon talent show. He quickly follows it up with a TOUR DE FORCE dance performance with his sister, Mandi, set to the rousing music of the excrecraptic C+C Music Factory.

Impressive? Yes. But those pants, man. Holy Shit, the 90s. Were we all trying to HIDE OUR TORSOS?

Go Gosling, Go Gosling, Go!

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Kip Hackman

    I can't be the only one who wants to see him do this exact routine right now, years later. It might be hard to find the right pair of pants to recreate the routine, but that's what hollywood costume designers are for.

  • SaBrina

    Wait, wait, wait: Ryan Gosling is Mormon?

    Another thought I had: look at that gyrating! I don't know how anybody can now say that little children dancing like Beyone is a symbol of deteriorating morals or the coming ice cream apocalypse or something when THAT was happening at a MORMON talent show.

  • competitivenonfiction

    I am so excited about this ice cream apocalypse. Please tell me more.

  • layla

    Not cute then. Not cute now!

  • Lyndsey

    Ellen needs to call him STAT to arrange for a recreation of this video on her show. Costumes included. She will stand in for Mandi.

  • There'll Be Pancakes

    I really need to see the adult Ryan Gosling doing those moves.

    I defy anyone to tell me the 90s weren't amazing

  • Wormer

    Oh dear god. I can't stop laughing. The 90's were so embarrassing, even for baby goose. Thank god.
    I thought I was an old school Gosling lover with my Breaker High fandom but this tops the cake! Kudos to whoever unearthed this gem.

  • Hey Girl,
    You know I save all my best moves for you.

  • Jason Malmberg

    There's a hundred-thousand beats in this city. You don't need to know the moves. You give me a time and a place, I give you a three and a half minute window. Give me a dope beat in that three and a half minutes and I'm yours. No matter what. I don't sit in while you're breaking it down. I don't Cabbage Patch. I dance. Do you understand?

    How is he not in Magic Mike?!

  • prairiegirl

    My love of him just grew exponentially. How did he not get into the cast of Newsies back in the day? Perhaps Bale + Gosling on screen would have been too much for young adolescent minds to bear. Regardless, someone needs to get this man into a musical STAT.

  • Katylalala

    The thought of Bale AND Gosling in Newsies is just too much for pre-teen girls to handle. It's probably too much for teen girls as well.

    I LOVED me some Newsies, and Gosling is obviously everyone's sensitive celebrity boyfriend, so I don't even know what to do with the thought of the two of them together.

    Nevermind, yes I do.

  • Our kids will be so talented.

  • This explains the cracked-out, vacant stare in 'Half Nelson' and the internal slow-burn of 'Drive' cannot be subjected to that experience as a child without damage being done.

  • Cuca

    How come he hogged all the face time? Who shot this video? He was not famous yet, so I'm guessing it was Mom or Dad. Kind of unfair for the sister, no?

  • God, you'd hope it was one of the parents wouldn't you?
    I was thinking "which Pedo shot this?"

  • Puddin

    Mandi wasn't exactly selling it to the cheap seats though, was she? Our boy Ryan was working and twerking it like the rent was due.

  • KatSings

    This is magnificent.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    You can see why the Mickey Mouse Club just snatched him right up. It's a wonder he didn't end up in a boy band.

  • lowercase_ryan

    one of these kids has shit for timing. I'm blaming Goose. I feel better about myself now.

  • fpkillkill

    Ohh, I had to stop watching. I'm very embarrassed for them.

  • Quorren

    That's why I couldn't watch. I'm too embarrassed for my future lover.

  • The kid can dance! Although, I can't believe they got away with all that thrusting at a Mormon talent show.
