While downtown protesters braved NYPD beatdowns to continue their occupation of Wall Street today, a separate group of somewhat less serious occupiers took over the sidewalk outside People magazine's office. They were Ryan Gosling fans, and they were there to protest Bradley Cooper winning this year's "Sexiest Man Alive" title. Their anthem:

Bradley Cooper is just fine,
But Ryan Gosling is divine.

The event appears to be the brainchild of Buzzfeed editor Matt Stopera. A vast media conspiracy to promote the cuddling of puppies in Ryan Gosling's strong arms? Just wait until the pro-Cooper wingnuts hear about this. [Buzzfeed, Matt's Tumblr, Pro-Gosling Facebook]
