You know him as hot daddy to Esmeralda and hunky partner to actress Eva Mendez (lucky!), but these throwback videos show that The Notebook actor is also a charming guy. A series of videos from 1992 surfaced online over the weekend, posted by Ottawa, Canada resident Shaun Swire. They were reportedly filmed at his dance studio about a year before Gosling joined Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club. The first video shows a pre-teen Gosling dancing to the beat while the second one shows him climbing out of a mini-Elvis Presley car while performing to Hound Dog. Even Gosling was amused by the videos, tweeting, “Obviously, I peaked early. Thank you @JaneChupick and twitter for the check up from the neck up” Watch his performances by clicking the videos below.
