Ryan Gosling turned 35 today, and as a reverse birthday present to everyone, he returned to Twitter after a 100-day hiatus.

But he didn’t just come back to say, “Happy Birthday to me.” Gosling resurfaced to give a shout-out to Bernie Sanders by asking his followers to share a video of the presidential candidate.

This seemed like a bizarre birthday boy endorsement to us. What was even more bizarre was his second tweet in 100 days: a follow-up to clarify that this was not a Sanders endorsement. Hmm. Maybe he just really loves the video's cinematography?

Gosling (who claims to avoid the Internet), created a whole Vine video in retaliation to the Internet’s suggestion that he won’t eat his cereal…



Everyone likes a cute pun every now and then…




In fairness, he was given a pretty bizarre lead question, but this is a helluva twitter rejection if ever we saw one.

Care to elaborate?

That time he was a feminist.

Hey Ryan. You were gone for two years. Not really over doing it, don’t worry.



I would argue that Ryan Gosling is winning the battle against Twitter. And the Internet.
