Good morning! Canadian chain Tim Hortons is introducing a very, very limited-edition movie tie-in: an official Ryan Gosling Gangster Squad coffee cup. The Ontario-born actor gave an interview to movie site Tribute.ca in which he professed an admiration for the movie tie-ins of his youth, specifically Burger King’s Dick Tracy soda cups. “I thought I might get a cup out of this deal,” said Gosling. The interviewer suggested the coffee-and-doughnuts chain would be a good fit.
After a Buffalo.com writer chimed in that a Gosling noirish mug on the side of a mug was something the world needed badly, the coffee chain promised to look into it, and here is the result: a one-of-a-kind mug that’s being sent to the actor.

“Hey @BuffaloDotCom, you inspired us to create this one-of-a-kind @RyanGosling mug,” the chain tweeted. “What do u think? It’s on it’s way!”
Ryan Gosling, check your mailbox and enjoy your Gangster Squad tie-in coffee mug! (But don’t tell Sean Penn.)
