Tumblr Goes Meme-Crazy for Ryan Gosling

I think we can all agree that Ryan Gosling is the perfect guy.  He’s got the looks, the charm and, of course, the notebook.  And, as of this year, he’s got a meme dedicated to him.  Ryan Gosling’s ‘Hey Girl’ meme, which originated on the ‘F*** Yeah Ryan Gosling’ Tumblr, asks, as Jezebel so perfectly puts it, “What if you and Ryan [Gosling] were involved, and he said ‘Hey Girl’ a lot?”  It consists of pictures of Ryan with gentlemanly quotes like “Hey Girl, I can’t wait to meet your parents and all of your friends” printed on them.

Recently, the ‘Hey Girl’ meme has branched out into a plethora of Tumblr blog spinoffs in which Ryan charms everyone from librarians to Silicon Valley.  We’ve put together a list of ten of the best Ryan Gosling ‘Hey Girl’ meme Tumblrs.  Check ‘em all out below and girl, don’t forget to let us know which one you like best!  But first, check out Ryan’s MTV News interview below, in which he talks about the ‘Hey Girl’ meme and even reads a few ‘Hey Girl’ lines.

And now…on to the Tumblrs!

Feminist Ryan Gosling

The inspiration for Silicon Valley Ryan Gosling was none other than Feminist Ryan GoslingDanielle, the graduate student and teacher in the gender studies program at the University of Wisconsin that started Feminist Ryan Gosling, describes the Tumblr as “Feminist theory flashcards from your favorite sensitive movie dude-turned-meme.”

Ryan Gosling Works In Publishing

The Ryan Gosling Works In Publishing Tumblr asks, “Why not? Maybe he could.”

Hey girl. I like the library too.

Ryan Gosling isn’t only crazy about books when he works in publishing—he’s also a bibliophile in ‘Hey girl. I like the library too.’ From card catalogues and periodicals to microfiche and, of course, librarians.

Hey girl, I’m a serial killer.

Uh oh, girls! Watch out!  Ryan may not be as sweet as you think.  He shows his not-so-gentlemanly side in ‘Hey girl, I’m a serial killer.’ The creator of this Tumblr clarifies, “I worry that this feels too creepy and misogynistic.  To be clear, I’m just messing around with subverting a meme.  I am not suggesting in any way that Ryan Gosling actually murders women.  I’m a big fan and think he’s a killer actor.”
