Hey Girl, Ryan Gosling was perfect even when he was a kid.
A vintage video clip of Gosling singing and dancing his ass off in some MC Hammer pants has just surfaced to the Internet and we're all impressed by his mad skills.
An 11-year-old Ryan and his sister Mandi are rocking out at a Mormon talent show in 1991 (Sidebar: Mormons are allowed to dance?)
A young Gosling sets the mood singing a version of “When A Man Loves A Woman” collectively introducing everyone in the audience to Ryan “Hey Girl” Gosling.
You must watch the video in it’s entirety. It gets really good at the :36 mark when Ryan is joined by his sister and both kids bust out dance moves to C+C Music Factory’s “Gonna Make Your Sweat (Everybody Dance Now).”
There are even some NSFW moments, and I say that because I never wanted to see an 11-year-old pelvic thrust while winking, but somehow this is okay, because it’s Ryan Freaking Gosling!
He even jumps into the audience at one point to give an up close and personal performance to some people in the front row. This is like eight years and several layers of clothing away from being the weirdest strip tease ever.
This performance took place about two years before he joined the Mickey Mouse Club in 1993. Gosling hasn’t ditched his dance roots. He reportedly takes ballet classes to stay in shape. When other guys hit the gym, Gosling heads to the ballet bar. If any of you out there still don’t think this man is perfect, I’m assuming you have a giant cardboard cut-out of Justin Bieber where a heart should be.
Switch teams, Ryan Gosling is OUR generations new song and dance man.
