Ryan Gosling and Mike Myers Brought Canadian Christmas to SNL

Ryan Gosling, latest host of SNL, opened the show with a lie. Upon taking the stage, the actor waxed nostalgic about being “back home in New York City,” where he could relax, recharge, and grab “a slice of ’za with the bros.”

But Gosling is not from New York: He’s from Cornwall, a city in the strange, forgotten land of Canada. Enter fellow Famous Canadian Mike Myers, here to make Gosling “so-ree” for the rejection of his roots. How? With a musical number, of course—one that teaches Americans everywhere what Canadian Christmas is all a-boot.
