What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Two Ryans and Some Cereal

No means no!

The internet has gotten us into the habit of digesting information in bite-sized pieces.Popular articles are generally shorter than their printed counterparts, commercials tend to be fifteen seconds in length, and the only videos longer than five minutes that anyone takes the time to watch are Ted Talks (and even they are getting shorter). Vines are six-second videos. They’re not bite-sized pieces; they’re crumbs. They’re molecules. Making someone laugh in only six seconds with little or no context seems very daunting. But aspiring filmmaker Ryan McHenry cracked the code.

“[I was] sitting in my living room eating cereal and watching Drive when I notice it looked like Ryan Gosling was staring at my bowl of cereal. I laughed about it and thought maybe I should Vine this. I tried a few different things, then realized it works best by just slowly creeping the spoon towards him.” -Ryan McHenry on how he created “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal”

These vines are weirdly hilarious. I hope you enjoy them all, but be warned; there is a sad ending to it all.

  1. The videos are very silly and yet very clever at the same time. I will need to show your post to my husband who just doesn’t get the Gosling at all. You were right that the conclusion was incredibly sad.

  2. What a shame that Gosling responded after he died. That’s really sad too.

  3. The videos are incredible. The clinking of the spoon as Ryan pushes it away….wow. Amazing stuff. Not the ending I expected, Donna.
