It's a bit freakish, but still amazing, how fast things travel on the Internet.

Take, for example, this 1991 video of a Mormon talent show — in which a 10-year-old Ryan Gosling wows the crowd with a soulful rendition of "When a Man Loves a Woman" and (with his sister Mandi) an energetic dance routine to C&C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat."

Since the video was posted on YouTube Monday, it's generated more than 100,000 hits - and mentions on Yahoo!, The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, Buzzfeed, and other sites.
