Apropos of nothing, a fun little Ryan Gosling-inspired cartoon popped up on YouTube. But it's a slow news day, and the video perfectly encapsulates the biggest problem with "Drive," the tense and at times sclerotic crime movie starring Gosling as a mostly mute auto repairman with a dangerous side job. In the film, Gosling answers nearly all questions with a healthy, multi-second pause. When he does speak, he's awfully soft-spoken.

This cartoon -- by a fellow who goes by Kurtoon -- captures it all brilliantly. Watch above and laugh. Here are the credits:

Cashier:Liz-Ann Agostino
Ryan Gosling: Kurtis Scott
Musical score is a sound-alike. Written and performed by Kevin Scott
