Having a boyfriend is hard work. They eat your food, sleep in your bed, spend your money on cars and video games, occasionally find other people more attractive than you, and distract you from perfectly good movies with coitus.
That's why Fuck Yeah, Ryan Gosling is such a dear part of our lives. A fantasy boyfriend who says all the right things, but you don't have to put up with his mantics. When you see those words, "Hey Girl," it's like a lavender bath for your brain. Don't you just hear him saying it in your head? All soft and sexy-like? I don't know about you, but it placates me.
I don't even have a celebri-crush on Gosling. Well, maybe a little when I saw "The Notebook." Try to tell me he wasn't, like, batshit perfect in that movie. And he's not really bad to look at, either. And he seems like a really cool, sweet guy. Based on appearances, I'm not entirely sure he ISN'T the perfect man.
As a meme, various photos of Gosling are posted along with phrases he would say if he were into you in a bad way. "Hey Girl, Since Tumblr's been down, I wrote twenty songs about how great your hair smells"; "Hey Girl, Sure the hallway fight in 'Inception' was awesome, but why are you so gaga about Joseph Gordon-Levitt? I mean, what does he have that I don't? I'm not jealous. I swear. He's a good actor, but I mean....I'm not jealous"; "Hey Girl, Sometimes I get so sad when we can't watch 'Golden Girls' together."
Gosling may be the dude to end all dudes, or he may just be a fresh and funny meme. And what enhances a meme better than a mix to go along? Replete with some sweet romance, boy band action and mood music, this mix might just be your next fantasy boyfriend.
