Ryan Gosling sings, dances in Hammer pants at 1991 talent show (Video)


Ryan Gosling (Katy Winn/DAPD)

That kid was none other than future Oscar nominee and Internet meme Ryan Gosling.

Yes, in a video recently uploaded to YouTube, baby Gosling croons “When A Man Loves a Woman” (the Michael Bolton cover version, we assume) then does a choreographed dance routine with his sister Mandi to the sounds of C+C Music Factory. Matching outfits are involved.

Gosling would bring his skills to a much larger audience in 1993 when he was cast of Disney’s “Mickey Mouse Club.”

The video’s uploader, my new hero Rossana Odar, said in a message she was at the show and filmed the footage herself.

Fair warning: The video may make you feel many things, including happiness and second-hand embarrassment. Watch it below.
