Seizing the opportunity, local radio station 95.5 Mojo decided to play a prank on starstruck Michiganders who thought the 32-year-old hunk was taking a break from directing “How to Catch a Monster.”

Discovering a man who looked like the “Notebook” star and dressing him up in a hoodie and sunglasses, the look was completed with a security team for the “star.”

Check out the video below in which “Lyin’ Gosling” fools lots in Detroit and makes many fans quite happy for their perceived brush with fame.
