Smear Ads 2012: Stop Liking Ryan Gosling — VIDEO

Ryan Gosling

With the 2012 Presidential election only a day away, millions of Americans have been relentlessly inundated with smear ads from both campaigning candidates. Both President Barack Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s camps have been mudslinging nonstop over the past few months, and will likely do so right up until November 6. So what’s the best way to fight off the onslaught of all those negative, frustrating smear ads? More smear ads, of course! As such, has come up with our own pop culture-based smear campaigns.

It’s no surprise that this country has a weakness when it comes to celebrities. We love them. We admire them. We even worship them. But there is one figure revered above all: Ryan Gosling. A man who, whether you want to believe it or not, is pure evil.

That’s the message the below anti-Gosling smear campaign is slinging, anyway. See, the unabashed love for the Drive and The Notebook star is causing a particular problem for a certain component of the American demographic. A group that has long suffered from Gosling’s surface sweetness, but has now banded together to reveal his inner monster. Your boyfriend (yes, yours) wants you to know the truth about Mr. Gosling. 

Check out the campaign video below to find out the truth about Ryan Gosling… and hurry. You’ve been blind to his dark side for far too long.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
