The Daily Dot explains that the duo convinced the Goldene Kamera producers that they could get Ryan Gosling to the ceremony. (Naturally, that involved starting an entire faux talent agency, just for the prank.) Somehow, the show agreed to not having Gosling sit in the audience before accepting the award.
When "Gosling" took the La La Land award, he thanked the two comedians in his speech. The actual celebrities who were in attendance were shocked — the imposter looks little like the real Gosling, and people were wondering what was going on. You can see Jane Fonda's, Colin Farrell's, Nicole Kidman's, and other stars' stunned faces in the clip below.
