Sure electricity’s great and planes are cool and computers are useful-ish. But when it comes down to our society’s greatest inventions in the past 500 years, The Gosline takes the cake. Heck, it might even take the whole bakery. I mean, it’s a Ryan Gosling helpline designed to help fans cope with the fact that he’s taking a break from acting. A break that’s a little vague considering that he has approximately 14 movies coming out in the next two years. So maybe by break, he meant long weekend. Either way, any time without Ryan Gosling is lost time. Or so my vagina once wrote in her diary after a lonely night spent drinking white wine and watching The Lake House.
Uproxx has all the details you need on this life-changing invention. An invention that surely will go down in the history books right between the shake weight and that hotel quality bathrobe that they always throw in for free if you purchase something off the TV in the next 10 minutes.
Website Blinkbox has established “The Gosline” to help fans deal with the news, with people able to ring the emergency number and listen to audio recordings of some of his most famous lines of dialogue. Included among the selections are a speech from the 2004 romantic comedy The Notebook, in which Gosling says: “So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day.”
So yeah, this is basically the next best thing to actually speaking to Ryan Gosling on the phone. For a few minutes you can close your eyes, pretend you’re Eva Mendes and that Ryan Gosling actually loves you. Yes, you! The girl who had braces twice! The girl who still twists her ankles in heels! The girl who feels compelled to detag 95% of photos tagged of her on Facebook. YOU!
There’s only one catch. It’s not exactly what you’d call an American phone number. Which means that it’s going to be a pricey call, a very pricey call indeed. However take a page from The Notebook and don’t let money stand in your way when it comes to reconnecting with your one true love. Just make the call from a phone that you do not own. Whether it’s a phone at work or a phone at school or a phone that your roommate carries around with her and refers to as “my phone,” it doesn’t matter. Just pick it up and dial the number. I promise you that you won’t regret it.
