Even in 1992, Ryan Gosling was a stud with swagger.
New videos of the "Lost River" star strutting his stuff surfaced over the weekend and showcase the young twinkletoes breaking it down as Elvis Presley and owning the stage in harem pants.
"Obviously I peaked early. Thank you @JaneChupick and twitter for the check up from the neck up," the new dad tweeted on Saturday after the videos manifested online.

Dance videos of the child wunderkind have set social media ablaze in the past (see: young Gosling singing with young Justin Timberlake and J.C. Chasez and performing "Everybody Dance Now" with his sister Mandi), but these newest clips show Gosling in all his close-up, pre-teen glory.
In one clip, the Mickey Mouse Club alum embodies a miniature King of Rock 'n Roll -- black leather jacket and all -- and struts his stuff to Presley's "Hound Dog" on top of a topless pink convertible.
The "Crazy Stupid Love" star previously told Interview that he had a role in his uncle's Elvis cover band, but why there are grown adults swing dancing around him in this clip we have no idea. It's unclear if this was part of the act, but it's totally obvious who the star of the show is.
The other video is generously lengthier and allegedly shows Gosling in 1992 — making him about 11 years old — rocking out in harem pants to Cathy Dennis' cover of "Touch Me (All Night Long)." He does the running man, he whips his hair around and flashes his mischievous grin.
Naturally, girls fall to the ground all around him.
