Hey girl, did you realize you can now watch videos of Ryan Gosling dancing as a middle schooler?

One appears to show the Canadian movie star dancing like Elvis Presley to a “Hound Dog” routine.

Another appears to be of Gosling moving and shaking to “Do You Love Me” by The Contours.

And this one seems to be getting the most laughs because his shiny silver pants resemble the kind MC Hammer would wear.

The clips seem to have been first posted on Facebook, and later on YouTube, by Ottawa, Canada, resident and owner of Kiwi Kraze frozen yogurt shop Shaun Swire. They were reportedly filmed at his dance studio, about a year before he joined Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club.

Gosling tweeted confirmation that the videos are real:

@RyanGosling We've been reminiscing about my cuz's dancing at Elite... And about your penchant for MC Hammer pants!

Obviously I peaked early. Thank you @JaneChupick and twitter for the check up from the neck up.
