Hope you were prepared to cry today. Ryan Gosling has joined Vine– and his reason for doing so will definitely make you ugly sob into your lunch.
If you’ve ever even casually scrolled through Vine, you will likely be familiar with the viral video series referred to as “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal.” Not gonna lie, it’s basically exactly what you think it is: footage of Ryan in his various films, while a spoon full of cereal (outside of the film) approaches his face but, to no avail, he will not eat the cereal. It’s sillier than it sounds– and it sounds pretty silly. Very sadly, RGWEHC creator Ryan McHenry, 27, passed away recently, leaving behind a lasting legacy. In fact, on May 4, Ryan honored his fallen fan in the most perfect and touching way imaginable.
Ryan Gosling Joins Vine & Eats Cereal
News that Ryan Gosling has joined Vine is enough to bring tears to any human’s eyes (those with hearts, anyways).
However, the reason why will turn you into a blubbering mess. Let’s break it down.
Ryan’s inaugural Vine opens on an empty bowl, which is quickly filled with cereal. Obviously, the next step is to add milk. Done. Finally, we see Ryan sitting squarely in across from the camera. He takes a spoonful of the bowl’s contents, puts it in his mouth, and smiles.
Alas, Ryan Gosling did finally eat his cereal.

Ryan also tweeted his respects for McHenry, proving furthermore why he is just the best. Check out the touching message below.
My heart goes out to all of Ryan McHenry’s family and friends. Feel very lucky to have been apart of his life in some small way.

What an awesome way to pay tribute. He will be missed but, obviously, his creations will live on.
