Somewhere in New Oreleans last night, Ryan Gosling sat down and finally ate his cereal.

The actor produced the touching Vine video as a heartwarming tribute to Ryan McHenry, a man who for several years had hilariously convinced the world that Gosling despised the breakfast food. McHenry passed away last Sunday following complications from osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer. He was only 27. 

Added Gosling in a tweet: 

Conceived in 2013, McHenry's Vine memes featured scenes of Gosling from various films avoiding a spoon of cereal. Last month, during an iTunes Q&A, the actor was asked about one thing fans might not know about him. His answer? 
To which McHenry replied:
Answered Gosling:

To honor McHenry, his family has started a fundraiser for Sarcoma UK. "His family and friends can think of nothing more appropriate to honour Ryan's life than by making a positive impact on the lives of others suffering from this disease," they write.
