A small coffee shop in Toronto was left shook, after Ryan Gosling walked through its doors.
Grinder Coffee launched a Twitter campaign to get the First Man star to come in for a coffee, and tweeted him a series of pictures of a cardboard cut-out Ryan Gosling enjoying the hot beverage. They knew he would be in the area, due to the Toronto Film Festival.
It was a 10 day campaign and on the 10th day, the glorious Gosling appeared.

And this happened... #ryanneedsgrinder worked. The man himself showed up. What a good sport, a well brought up Canadian boy. We truly appreciate Ryan taking the time the time to visit us during #tiff. Take that @idriselba your loss. pic.twitter.com/8rMMWOs32J
