What do you do when your boyfriend breaks up with you? Look for a new one of cousre.
While most people get back out there by meeting new people, hitting the bar scene or even joining an online dating site, one woman decided to use a poster.
I think the lost-and-found poster is a highly original idea, I mean how else would a normal person off the street ever get in contact with a celeb or celeb look-alike? Pictured above, it simply states “LOST: My Boyfriend” with a picture of the one and only Ryan Gosling. At first glance, I thought it was really funny, a quirky pick-me up to anyone who happens to walk by.
But the poster isn’t just a form of amusement for people passing by.
There is only one poster, and it hangs in the window of a Brooklyn woman’s shop. Apparently, her boyfriend disappeared and just stopped calling. When CC, the woman with the poster, finally called, he ended the relationship with no explanation. Obviously upset (who wouldn’t be?) her brother decided to do something to cheer her up. To make light of her unfavorable situation he made the poster! But the choice of celeb was all CC’s choice. Who needs the sexiest man alive when you could have the coolest man alive? Ryan Gosling.
The Frisky got the inside scoop with CC.
“It was just a catchy idea, a joke,” CC said. “That flyer was my way to tell the universe, give me a break, give me Ryan, give me something! When my brother made me that flyer, it was the first time I had laughed since my breakup. It was poking fun at a bad situation.”
CC hasn’t had any responses to the poster, which I find particularly disappointing, but CC doesn’t. She said, “My break up is still very fresh.”
Even if my boyfriend just broke up with me I would still greatly appreciate a Ryan Gosling look-alike, or even the real man himself, to show up on my doorstep!
