This Coffee Shop Owner Convinced Ryan Gosling To Visit Her Café With A Life Size Cardboard Cutout

What better way to get Ryan Gosling to visit your café than to make a giant cutout of him and post it on Twitter?

Joelle Murray, the owner of Grinder Coffee in Toronto's east end might not be your typical Ryan Gosling fan. However, many might say that she is a master of marketing, given that she was able to convince Gosling to visit her coffee shop with nothing but a life size cardboard cutout and a viral social media campaign promising 15% off if he showed up during the Toronto International Film Festival.

Murray isn’t one to quit when it comes to getting stars to visit her cafe. She decided to begin the campaign earlier this month after failing to convince Idris Elba to visit Grinder Coffee last year. According to Canoe.com, even though Gosling had already seen the posts on Twitter, it was his mother that convinced him to stop by. Murray, of course, had nothing but good things to say about her encounter with the actor.

We’re not going to lie, we’ve sent life size cardboard cutouts of ourselves before and they never got someone like Ryan Gosling to come visit us.
