Perhaps you've seen the work of Scottish filmmaker Ryan McHenry. He's the man behind the "Ryan Gosling won't eat his cereal" meme; sadly, McHenry died Monday at the age of 27 after a two-year battle with osteosarcoma.

McHenry's meme went viral after its creation in 2013 and entertained audiences worldwide. Apart from unintentionally providing the perfect setup of facial expressions and mouth-shielding scarf maneuvers, Gosling had no direct involvement with the series, The Guardian notes.
