"Hey Girl" Geekery Art Poster by DEPdesigns, $17

There is no shortage of Gosling-inspired artwork being slung on Etsy. If you're looking for an $100 acrylic painting of a scene from Blue Valentine, his profile printed on pages from an antique dictionary, a portrait made entirely of the artist's lipstick pressings on paper, or a detailed illustration of Drive's harrowing hammer-in-head scene in pastel paints, those all exist. But the poster above is the only piece that takes the much-memed "Hey, Girl" Tumblr and turns it into a fill-in-the-blank game. Some suggestions:

*Hey girl, I baked you a cupcake.
*Hey girl, I also like McDonalds.
*Hey girl, I donated a bunch of money to Greenpeace in your name.
*Hey girl, let's just take a nap.
*Hey girl, I'm not at all creeped out by the fact you own a plush doll that looks like me, or an iPad case that looks like my dog, or a wine glass with my face painted on it.
