A German film awards ceremony was crashed by a Ryan Gosling imposter who managed to breach every level of security and give a short acceptance speech to the star-studded crowd.
Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf decided to make light of the stuffy awards show by setting up a fake agency that promised administrators of the Goldene Kamera awards that they could get Ryan Gosling to attend if he was given an award.
Host Steven Gaetjen excitedly introduces ‘one of the hottest stars in Hollywood’ as the tension in the crowd builds. Then out walks someone who looks like Ryan Gosling’s cousin with a moderate drinking problem. The man has been identified as Ludwig Lehner and he is a cook in Munich, Germany. The only cook to ever accept a film award in front of Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, and Jane Fonda.
‘Good evening, I am Ryan Gosling!’ he says in a German accent.
He adds: ‘I dedicate this award to Joko and Klass, thank you very much. There is a saying in Hamburg, which is, ‘bye, bye!’ before swiftly making his way off stage.
The host, realizing he was duped, explains that there has been a mistake, which can happen during live broadcasts.
Organizers of the show have already reportedly ordered a complete revision of security procedures following the gaffe, reports Daily Mail.
Love this. Celebrities pat themselves not he back with these awards shows every other week, and it’s about time someone brought them down to earth. Not to mention, it’s a refreshing break from an out-of-touch celebrity preaching to us on how to live our lives in their acceptance speech. The question remains: did this dude catch some tail from groupies thinking he may actually be Gosling? I choose to believe he did.
