Guess his fans weren’t the only ones giggling with glee. Ryan Gosling hosted Saturday Night Live on Saturday, Dec. 5, and the actor could hardly keep a straight face through most of his live sketches.
In one that starred Aidy Bryant as an inappropriate 13-year-old and Gosling, 35, as her friend’s goofy dad, the Big Short actor tried but failed to stay stoic as Bryant’s character aggressively hit on him and then licked cake icing off his finger.
“I’m going to call your mom!” he exclaimed.
“What, why?” Bryant’s character asked innocently.
“Because you’re a child, and you just sucked the hell out of my adult finger,” he replied, trying to be stern.
In another sketch, about three alien abductees, Gosling cracked up as Kat McKinnon’s character described her experience peeing in front of the giant gray space creatures.
Once Gosling lost it, so did the audience, and the rest of the sketch went to pieces.
Other sketches throughout the night included the actor as the scarecrow in The Wiz, as a naughty Christmas elf, and as, well, himself.
Then, of course, there was Gosling’s opening monologue, during which he adopted a fake Brooklyn accent, reminiscing about his favorite things to do in New York City during the holidays: visit Rockefeller Center, watch the Rockettes, and get a slice of za.
Cecily Strong stood up in the audience to point out that Gosling isn’t from New York at all, but Canada.
Cue SNL alum Mike Myers, who joined Gosling onstage in a Toronto Maple Leafs hockey jersey to school the actor on why he shouldn’t be ashamed to be Canadian.
The pair burst into a Canadian Christmas carol, complete with a smirk or two from the “Hey Girl” meme muse himself — as well as plenty of “soh-rries” and “a-boots.”
