"Deadpool" star Ryan Reynolds is teaming up with the equally charismatic Sir Richard Branson to bring Aviation American Gin to Virgin Atlantic flights.
The pair announced the gin would be available in Virgin's clubhouses and on board its aircraft with a comical video. Reynolds jokingly misuses business jargon in the 90-second spot. Other videos alongside Branson are planned.
"At Aviation we're totally focused on making the best damn gin on the planet," Reynolds says in the ad. "In order to maximize shareholder value, we are pleased to announce Virgin Atlantic and Aviation are merging."
He's quickly corrected by Branson, "Actually, Ryan, this is more of a partnership announcement."
"At first," Reynolds adds, before suggesting that the two companies will now be called Aviavirgination, prompting Branson to walk off the set.
Reynolds acquired an undisclosed stake in the Oregon-based Aviation Gin in February from Davos Brands, which owns Astral Tequila, Sombra Mezcal and Tyku Sake. He has since taken an active role in its day-to-day operations.
Celebrities have been teaming up with alcohol brands for decades, but for some, it's not enough to just be the spokesperson. Jon Bon Jovi launched Hampton Water, a rose wine company, with his son Jesse Bongiovi; director Francis Ford Coppola bought a winery and produces Coppola Wine; and comedian Dan Aykroyd founded Crystal Head Vodka. Not to mention, last year, actor George Clooney sold his tequila business for more than $700 million to Diageo.
