UPDATE: Tim Hortons is trying to make this happen, and a representative from the coffee-doughnut restaurant chain actually tweeted the link to this very article at Ryan Gosling earlier today.
In a recent interview, Ryan Gosling admitted he wants his face on a Tim Hortons cup.
Heck, I want his face on my cup.
The “Gangster Squad” stud born in nearby southern Ontario was promoting his latest flick in a Tribute.ca interview, during which he disclosed that he hoped that he’d get his face plastered on some fast food merchandise like the stars of 1990’s “Dick Tracy” did.
“I thought I might get a cup out of this deal,” Gosling said, to which the interviewer responds, “Tim Hortons? We’re gonna talk.”
“Could we get a Tims mug for ‘Gangster Squad,’ please?” Gosling pleads.
YEAH, CAN WE?
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Tim Hortons or Ryan Gosling, my two favorite southern Ontario exports. Seriously, if you do a quick Google Image search of the terms “Tim Hortons” and “Ryan Gosling,” photos of me show up in the results.
No word from Tim Hortons corporate on the status of this Hollywood-inspired coffee cup, but we managed to create our own Timmies mug featuring Gosling’s gorgeous mug. I call it the Gosling Goblet. Many thanks to my co-worker Kat, whose scissor precision came in handy crafting this cup design.
