Star Struck Fans In Detroit Go Crazy For Lyin’ (Not Ryan) Gosling
June 11, 2013

We don't usually get into pranks by morning radio shows, but this one is pretty good.

It was done by a show in Detroit, at the same time Ryan Gosling was in the city filming a movie.

The show took an accountant named Doug, who kind of looks like Gosling, and dressed him up in sunglasses and a hoodie - a la Ryan Gosling - and headed downtown during lunch hour.

And the best part is, we don't think Doug said a word the entire time. Watch what happens.
