Inspired by Fuck Yeah! Ryan Gosling

That "guy from The Notebook" (as he is referred to by the screaming girls who took this video) recently stepped right into a New York City street fight. The scene: an intersection in Astor Place, Manhattan, afternoon. The main players: an older man with a painting, a younger guy trying to take the painting (it may have been stolen from him), and Ryan Gosling, America's hero. Watch the action below—you will recognize Gosling from his "welcome to the gun show," bicep-baring tank top.

Your move, James Franco (because we're pretty sure this is something he hasn't done yet? And also in our head there might be an ongoing competition between these two. Actually, there definitely is.) To the videotape!:

Now if only he had been on that subway platform the other day. [via ONTD]
