The first time I ever watched Crazy Stupid Love, I was in utter awe of Ryan Gosling’s character. His suits were a little too ‘current’ for me – the sort that wouldn’t stand the test of time – and I was taken out of the film momentarily when he high-fived the lady at the bar, but other than that, wow.

The sort of man that most men try their utmost to be, whether they like to admit it or not. He had the perfect line for every situation. Granted, he also had the perfect face and body, but you can’t retract from the man’s game.

Sadly life isn’t nearly as sexy as most Gosling films would have you believe, and even if you do have the right lines to use, you’ll probably come off as a creep saying them.

Sometimes though, just sometimes, being smooth does pay off – and these people (most of whom are bar-workers) have proof…
