By all accounts, Ryan Gosling is a very polite boy. We can deduce this because he is Canadian—but cold, hard evidence comes in the form of this video, which shows Gosling sitting down for an interview when he gets a text message.

Gosling, who is promoting his iffy directorial debut, Lost River, is so caught off guard that his reaction is to apologize profusely and toss his iPhone to the other side of the room as if it's contaminated. Everything about this clip is just lovely.
