Monday blues (plus that hour of lost sleep) got you down? Here's something that should perk you up: a video of a 12-year-old Ryan Gosling dancing smoother than anything we've seen in Magic Mike.
Performing under the name "Ryan & Company," the pre-teen Gos—along with some terrifically enthusiastic backing dancers—gets his groove on during a rousing rendition of Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog" and another one we didn't recognize with the age-appropriate lyrics, "touch me!" There are also shiny Hammer pants involved—this was 1992, after all.
Watch and weep, below.
Clearly, we aren't the only ones who recognized baby Baby Goose's many talents: A year after these performances, Gosling earned a part on The All-New Mickey Mouse Club alongside fellow future stars Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera.
