Fake Ryan Gosling crashes German movie awards, garners fake laughter

  • Munich-based cook Ludwig Lehner came onto the stage pretending to be Ryan Gosling at the Goldene Kamera awards

Viewers can hear the excitement in host Steven Gaetjen's voice as he introduced "one of the hottest stars in Hollywood... the one and only, Ryan Gosling" onto the stage.

He said: 'I dedicate this award to Joko and Klass, thank you very much.

Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell and Jane Fonda were among the stars left speechless as the hunk came out to pick up the Best International Film award for La La Land at the German Golden Camera bash. "Men hold onto your wives, and wives hold onto your men.Here is the one and only, Ryan Gosling!".

Fonda, Kidman and Farrell, along with other audience members, were clearly confused and surprised - and didn't quite know how to react, given that they have presumably been in the presence of the real Gosling many times before.

It turned out that the incident was an elaborate prank arranged by two popular German comedians, Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf, according to the Daily Dot.

Scientists discover why pandas are black and white
Their dark eye patches may help them recognise each other or signal aggression toward panda competitors, the study said. The dual colour combination arises from its poor diet of bamboo and inability to digest a wider variety of plants.

The host returned to the stage shortly after the Gosling impersonator disappeared to explain there had been a mistake as the crowd looked on, perplexed.

The Gosling imposter is identified in the video as Ludwig Lehner, a chef from Munich.

They told awards show reps they could get "Ryan" to appear, but only if he was awarded something. "There is a saying in Hamburg, which is, 'bye, bye!'" The tepid applause afterward showcased the audience's confusion.

The pranksters allegedly set up a fake agency, promised Gosling would appear at the ceremony if he was awarded a prize, and the show's organizers fell for it and put it all together.

The latest incident comes following mild drama at the 2017 Academy Award when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced the musical film La La Land as the Academy Award victor for Best Picture.
