Ryan Gosling's performance as Ken in Greta Gerwig's Barbie movie is going to go down in history, and we've just been blessed with some seriously impressive behind-the-scenes footage from the music video for "I'm Just Ken."
If you've seen the movie, you'll know that the musical number is a deep introspective moment for Gosling's character who grapples with the fact that his identity is inherently tied to Barbie's.

As Ken dramatically bemoans his "blonde fragility," the camera cuts to Gosling and Gerwig cracking up at the sheer absurdity of the take.

Liu addressed the situation on his Instagram story, saying, "I'd beach off with this Kenadian again in a heartbeat."
