Ryan Gosling in Funny or Die Exclusive: Drunk History Christmas

Let me start off with a question: What do you think of when you hear the name Ryan Gosling? Let me follow up that question with an answer: Drunk at Christmas. Ryan Gosling makes me think of being drunk at Christmas. Keep reading.

If you've never seen or heard of the "Drunk History" videos from the Funny or Die team, set aside about 24 hours of your life and get yourself educated.

Quickly in a nutshell, "Drunk History" is this video series which features a comedian getting drunk and re-telling famous events in history, while celebrity guests (Ohhh ahhh) re-inact the scene as described by the drunk person. Hilarity ensues.

In this special Christmas edition, comedian Allan Mcleod tells his own drunk version of the famous Christmas fable, "Twas The Night Before Christmas" with Ryan Gosling playing the man who "sprang from his bed," Eva Mendez playing his wife, and none other than a heavily disguised Jim Carrey playing Santa Claus.

As the narrator bumbles through the Christmas tale, confusing all the names of the reindeer and saying, "the children were hung by the fire," Ryan Gosling in his doe-eyed way tip-toes through a Christmas house as he attempts to recreate this hilariously drunk version of the Christmas Story.

Also, in case you were wondering if Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendez were an item, I'd say it's safe to assume they are. The couple was spotted holding hands as they walked through an airport in France last month. Now they are joining forces as an on-camera man and wife. Try not to be super jealous and enjoy the drunk festiveness of this video.
