What Ryan Gosling wants, Ryan Gosling gets.

The Canadian actor’s most recent request – made in jest during an interview with Tribute.ca – for a custom Tim Hortons mug, has just been fulfilled by the coffee chain.

After Gosling joked that he wanted his latest film, Gangster Squad, to partner with Tim Hortons to create joint merchandise, the company created a custom mug with a picture of Gosling in the film and sent it to the actor.

On Jan. 21, Tim Hortons’ U.S. Twitter account posted a picture of the custom mug with a message to Buffalo.com, an online publication that penned an editorial demanding Tim Hortons create a mug for Gosling.

“Hey @BuffaloDotCom, you inspired us to create this one-of-a-kind @RyanGosling mug. What do u think? It’s on it’s way! pic.twitter.com/dzLd0int,” Tim Hortons tweeted.

The custom photo mug – which can be made for about $15 – has already been covered by New York Magazine and Toronto Life and is sure to drum tons of free PR for the chain.
