The celebrity Super Bowl pick is a time-honored tradition, one we at KSK are more than happy to take part in. For the next two weeks, stars from all over the world will drop in to make their picks. Today, it’s Drive star, Ryan Gosling.

Mmhmm.

Yeah.

Yeah, I got a Super Bowl pick.

It’s a good Super Bowl pick.

I could share it.

[Stares at you fixed for two minutes, blinking at exact 20-second intervals]

I like the Giants.

Big Blue.

31-24.

[Nods slightly for 20 seconds]

That’s the final score as I see it.

Could be different.

Sure, could be.

That’s just my guess.

Why?

I got reasons.

[15-minute single take shot of him flipping through a sports magazine]

See, look:

The Giants play good defense.

That’s important.

The Patriots play defense too.

The Giants play it better.

I think so, at least.

Uh-huh.

[Lights cigarette and smokes it while not breaking eye contact for five minutes]

The Patriots have the better offense.

The Giants have a good offense.

It just ain’t as good as the Patriots’.

Mmhmm.

I guess I make it sound about even.

No, sir. I don’t see it that way.

Remember, defense wins championships.

I don’t know if that’s true.

That’s just what they say.

But it’s comforting to believe.

People need things to believe in, sometimes.

Sure.

It helps when you’re scared or overwhelmed.

Who doesn’t get that way?

I do.

Don’t you?

Part of being human.

[Stifles cough]

Those teams are scared.

They don’t wanna admit it.

They’ve played this game before.

They’re still scared.

All that pressure.

It’d get to anyone.

You ever felt pressure like that?

Did it get to you?

I’m the best at what I do.

It still got to me.

Hey girl.
