Al Roker and Ryan Gosling showing off their 'Dirty Dancing' moves on 'Today'"The lift" is a move that took Johnny Castle and Baby a lot of practice to pull off in 'Dirty Dancing.' So imagine how successful Ryan Gosling and Al Roker were when they spontaneously decided to try it on national TV Wednesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC).

It all started when Roker mentioned Ann Curry had been talking about Gosling's 'Dirty Dancing' moves in the new film 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.' This prompted Gosling to suggest he try them out with Roker, who then took a couple of running starts at Gosling, who unsuccessfully tried to lift him into the air.

After Gosling gave Roker some tips, like, "You've got to really run," and "You've got to push on my shoulders," the third time proved to be the charm, and Gosling slowly but surely lifted an amazed Roker into the air. Inspired after his release, Roker yelled, "No one puts Ryan in the corner!" He also declared he thought he had the vapors. For Gosling's sake, we hope he didn't.
