11-year-old Ryan Gosling, you make Hammer pants look good [Video]
Ryan Gosling doing Patrick Swayze’s “Dirty Dancing” move? So last year. But Ryan Gosling dancing his butt off in MC Hammer pants, at age 11? Now this is something new.
Video has surfaced of Gosling performing with his sister Mandi in 1991, rocking out at a talent show to C+C Music Factory’s “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now),” which was a No. 1 hit the previous year.
Warning: He’s also wearing MC Hammer pants, setting a baseline for his destined-to-evolve fashion sense. Though he wouldn’t join the Mickey Mouse Club till 1993, it’s best to hold on to your hats and glasses while watching this performance, kids, ‘cause those pants were always a little bit dangerous to watch.
And hey girl, for a little romance, a taste of wee Gosling’s interpretation of “When a Man Loves a Woman” sets the mood — well, sets a mood — out of the gate.
Also! For hose who haven’t seen Gosling’s “Dirty Dancing” move with Emma Stone in “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” here’s a clip of him doing just that move — with the"Today"show’s Al Roker.
