In a lot of ways, Baby Goose had a typical Canadian childhood – banging dead cats against trees, being super polite to everyone, and gathering moose semen to warm his family’s cabin during long winters. But perhaps because he’s such a sweet, well-adjusted young man, we often forget that the Goose was also a child actor. In this classic clip, a 12-year-old Gosling-ling goes on Canadian TV in his finest denim shirt (“Canadian silk” they call it) to discuss his then-recent selection as a Mickey Mouseketeer, which is like Mooseketeers for Americans. He may be a pre-pubescent 12-year-old, but he’s still a Gosling, and you can practically hear the host’s panties melt off as she asks him how it felt to be chosen from among thousands to become the next Mouseketeer.
“It was just all neat,” says Gosling.
RIP, Canadian Morning Show Host’s Panties. Anyway, it’s nice to see that Hollywood hasn’t changed him a bit. He said the same thing about Eva Mendes’s boobs.
