WATCH: Ryan Gosling Sings Canadian Christmas Song In ‘SNL’ Monologue With Mike Myers (VIDEO)
Ryan Gosling opened his “SNL” monologue by talking about growing up in New York, though he’s really Canadian. He then sang a Canadian Christmas song. See the video below of Gosling’s “Saturday Night Live” monologue.
Gosling talked about being happy to be back in New York, but was interrupted by Cecily Strong, who pointed out that he’s really from Canada. But that’s not all. Mike Myers came out in a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey, and started questioning Goslin about why he was embarrassed about being Canadian, and then rattled off some of the great things about our neighbors up north, including Justin Bieber. Myers and Gosling then sang a Canadian Christmas song that included lyrics about drinking “Molson’s till you puke.”
This is the first time Gosling has hosted “Saturday Night Live.” He’s joined by Leon Bridges, who’s also making his debut as the show’s musical guest. Gosling is hosting “SNL” in advance of the release of his new film The Big Short, which is set for release on December 23.
Gosling’s movie is about a few real-life Wall Street traders and hedge fund managers who forsaw the housing collapse, which led to the stock market’s crash in 2008. Those guys, played by Gosling, Christian Bale, Steve Carell and Brad Pitt, correctly bet against mortgage bonds being paid up and, as a result, made a fortune while the banks got stuck with billions in debt.
