Preteen Ryan Gosling could really break it down. In videos that resurfaced on YouTube over the weekend, a 12-year-old Gosling can be seen dancing his heart out in an upbeat number—and then again in his rendition of “Hound Dog.”
At a young age, this kid had “star power” written all over him, even in those MC Hammer pants—which were obviously still all the rage in 1992. Gosling addressed the videos in a tweet, saying he “peaked early.”
Thank you, internet.
Obviously I peaked early. Thank you @JaneChupick and twitter for the check up from the neck up.
