“Woah, dance our dance, watch me dance…” -Drake.

With a quick Wikipedia search, you’ll learn that Ryan Gosling had major moves under his belt way before he skyrocketed to fame following 2004’s The Notebook. His major moves included: Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club (1993–95), Are You Afraid of The Dark (1995), Goosebumps (1996), Breaker High (1997–98), and Young Hercules (1998–99).

As you can see, the first of many pieces of work for Gosling included the Mickey Mouse Club, where he would be casted alongside Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. “It was kind of depressing because when I got [to the Mickey Mouse Club], they realized that I wasn’t really up to snuff in comparison with what some of the other kids were able to do,” he said in a CNN interview back in 2010. “I remember one time they put four of us in a dance routine, but I was so off. I was on the end, so they just pushed the shot in closer on the other three guys to frame me out.”

Unearthed is a rare (until it recently went viral) video from 1992 featuring “Ryan & Company” dancing to classic 90’s house music in classic 90’s attire — Hammer pants, specifically — proving he’s too legit to quit.
