'Tis the season for a festive surprise from Ryan Gosling, affectionately dubbed 'Kristmas Ken'! The beloved actor, also known for his Barbie fame, has treated fans to a holiday-themed EP titled 'Ken the EP,' featuring three new versions of the catchy hit "I'm Just Ken" from the official Barbie soundtrack.
Gosling, sporting his signature Ken shades, stars in a Christmas rendition of the song accompanied by a lively music video set in a studio adorned with colorful Christmas lights. The officially designated title for the cover is "I'm Just Ken (Merry Kristmas Barbie)," infusing a holiday flair into the well-known Barbie classic.
The EP, a collaboration with Barbie soundtrack producers Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt, includes an acoustic version of "In My Feelings," the electric "Purple Disco Machine Remix," and a rerelease of the original "I'm Just Ken" classic.
In the official "Merry Kristmas Barbie" music video, Gosling humorously questions if the Christmas theme is too much, considering the holiday imagery, including his own Santa mug. However, it's doubtful that anyone will lose interest, given the infectious holiday spirit.
As Gosling embraces the delight of awards season, despite not winning any awards this year, his presence at ceremonies becomes a highlight. His recent nomination for his role as Ken in Barbie has garnered attention, especially after his hilarious reaction at the Critics' Choice awards. When 'I'm Just Ken' won best song, Gosling's blank confusion and eyebrow-knotted expression became an instant viral meme, adding to the collection of Gosling memes created during his Barbie press tour.
Whether he's delivering holiday jams or entertaining us with awards season antics, Ryan Gosling continues to charm audiences and keep the festive spirit alive.
