Ryan Gosling Dancing In 1992 Throwback Videos Suggest He Popularized Hammer Pants — VIDEOS

Let's take a journey back in time and experience a magical, fleeting moment of time that's been hidden until now: Ryan Gosling dancing in 1992. Last weekend, three videos of Gosling's childhood dance recitals made their way around the internet, and they serve as definitive proof that Gosling has never been unattractive or unsure of his own attractiveness, because these are simply the facts of his life. Other Gosling throwback videos, like the one where he performs with Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez, have made the rounds before, but both pale in comparison to the beauty that is Ryan & Company taking the stage.

The first video shows young Gosling dancing to "Hound Dog" that involved some fairly impressive production value, but the second and third videos are the moments when he and his Hammer pants really shine. Clearly the star of every dance recital he's ever danced in, Gosling takes center stage in each of the videos, because while everyone else was busy playing a daffodil in their school play, Gosling was smashing the competition, being followed around by girls in sequins, and taking the world of children's dance theatre by storm. Gosling wasn't there to make friends. He was there to WIN. Take a look:
