How She Got Ryan Gosling To Visit Her Coffee Shop!
This Toronto coffee shop, Grinder Coffee, tried to get Edris Elba to visit them, to no avail. When Idris never showed up, they set their sights on Ryan Gosling...Hoping to convince the native Canadian to pay them a visit during the Toronto International Film Festival.
Shop owner Joelle Murray had been pursing Ryan Gosling since September 3rd with a social media campaign in which she posted photos of herself and a life-size cardboard cutout of Ryan. She even promised him 15% off his coffee if he showed, lol. Well guess what? It worked!
Joelle says that Ryan showed up to her shop on Tuesday to say hello to her & her customers--even though the shop is a 20-minute drive from the main festival strip. She said that Ryan told her that he had seen her posts, but that it was his mother who told him to visit! She also says that Ryan "was a very well-spoken, wonderful Canadian boy with very good manners."
VERY awesome! Keep scrolling down to check out her photo with Ryan below...
Her #RyanNeedsGrinder campaign worked! He visited the coffee shop & here's the picture proof...
