Ryan Gosling Stops Traffic To Save British Journalist
Our uber preferred super hawt bixch Ryan Gosling can do no wrong. He makes the world a better place by just standing there, his ‘hey girl’ photos inspire each and every one of us to get through even the most torturous of days, and now he has taken his civic duties to the next level by saving the life of a British Journalist visiting New York.
As many New Yorkers know, the concrete jungle we call home can be filled with terrible dangers, and the scariest and most ruthless offenders are often times yellow cabs.
These cabs have places to go, meters to run, and people to drive. They’ve got a mission to complete, and if you just so happen to be in the way of that mission, say in the middle of the street not looking where you are going, then chances are these fierce autoist may run you right over.
Laurie Penny, journalist at The New Statesman, found her self caught between a rock, a hard place, and luckily Ryan Gosling’s beautiful arms when he pulled her out of the way of a taxi on 6th avenue yesterday.
“I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. That actually just happened,”
“I was crossing 6th avenue in a new pink wig. Not looking the right way because I am from London. Ryan Gosling grabbed me away from a taxi.”
News broke of the heroic save and the media and Gosling fans began to reach out to the writer to get more detailed information of the event.
In reaction to her recent popularity Laurie tweeted:
No seriously. My phone and email have been going crazy with media requests all night and all morning and it’s getting silly now.
This whole experience is teaching me a great deal about American cultural production. This place is insane. #ryangosling.
I don’t mean to be a dickhead about this but I really think it’s a bit of a fuss over not very much. It did make me laugh, but life goes on.
Well Laurie, I don’t mean to be a dickhead either, but when Ryan Gosling, I repeat, RYAN GOSLING, saves your inattentive ass from oncoming New York traffic, you thank your lucky stars and NEVER question your newfound popularity. You deal with all of the emails and phone calls and messages because you were given a precious gift that every girl in America has hoped and dreamed for during at least one time of their tear-stained, longing-for-notebook-type-love, lives.
I’m sorry if you find our excitement off-putting. Next time look both ways before dealing with New York traffic. Also, if within the next few days you come to find droves of females laying themselves down along 6th avenue, just know, it’s entirely your fault.
