Ryan Gosling Made A Touching Vine In Tribute To Meme Creator Who Passed Away At Age 27
Ryan Gosling finally ate his cereal.
Yesterday Ryan Gosling joined Vine for the sole purpose of showing himself eating a bowl of cereal as a tribute to the late Ryan McHenry who became Internet famous for his “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat Hit Cereal” series of memes.
McHenry, from Scotland, created the meme in 2013 showing the many times in which Ryan Gosling refuses to eat his cereal using scenes from several of Gosling’s films. Unfortunately, shortly after the videos went viral McHenry was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer.
It took a couple of years, but just last month, Gosling actually went on Twitter to say that, yes, he really does love cereal, prompting a funny response from McHenry.

Sadly, Ryan McHenry passed away on Sunday at age 27. A campaign has been launched in his name to raise money for Sarcoma UK.
Here’s a recent compilation McHenry put together of some of his best “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal” Vines.
