FIST OF GOS, THE |fist əv ˈgōs, ðē; | Gosling's hand when the fingers are bent in toward the palm and held there tightly, typically in order to look dangerous when striking a pose for the camera. Mr Gosling has been caught in the act of menacing photographers, co-workers, movie directors, tv hosts and even friends -to name but a few- in countless times.
Sometimes, in his effort to look hazardous, he has even convinced other people to join him in what we would refer as The Fist of Gos crusade, leaving an interesting collection of images for the posteriority.
//2.- the fist of Gos variations Depending on the way Mr Gosling decides to face his opponents, the poses can be divided in three main categories: Clenched Pose, Pugilistic Pose and Pronation Pose.
Clenched Pose: Hand signal. A gesture made with the hand closed, the fingers flexed, and the tactile pads held firmly against the palm. Clenched fists signal an aroused emotional state, as in anger, excitement (e.g., to cheer on a team), or fear. In a business meeting, unconscious fisting is a visible sign of anxiety or unvoiced disagreement. In Pakistan, displaying a clenched fist toward another is a nonverbal sign used to display an "obscene insult"
Pugilistic Pose: Upright stance. The skill, practice, and sport of fighting with the fists; boxing.
Pronation Pose: For the forearm, when standing in the anatomical position, pronation will move the palm of the hand from an anterior-facing position to a posterior-facing position without an associated movement at the shoulder (glenohumeral joint). This corresponds to a counterclockwise twist for the right forearm and a clockwise twist for the left (when viewed superiorly).
