WREXHAM co-owner Ryan Reynolds has replaced his Hollywood sidekick in the latest Aviation Gin promotion video.

The AFC co-owner and Aviation Gin founder has featured in yet another comedic video with Rob - but it's not Rob McElhenney.

Instead, Ryan is joined by his friend and "legendary singer" Rob Thomas, best known for being the lead in the rock band 'Matchbox Twenty.' 

The video aims to promote Ryan's brand while also appealing to AFC fans.

On Twitter, Rob (Thomas) told Ryan he was ready to sing the Welsh national anthem at a Wrexham AFC match with some Aviation Gin in hand after the pair shared the humorous video. 

In the 30-second promo, Ryan said: "Wrexham fans have grown used to seeing me and other Rob together, but he's not legally allowed to be in Aviation Gin commercials."

Rob replied with: "So you want me to sing songs about Aviation Gin?"

"Yes. And in Welsh", said Ryan.

It also ends with "Un, Dau, Tri, Pedwar" the Welsh for one, two, three, four.

Ryan's witty remark about McElhenney in the video has left many fans with questions. 

Despite their partnership at the club, the Wrexham co-owners are quite different in the alcohol business field as McElhenney owns 'Four Walls', an American-based Whiskey brand.

Aviation American Gin, also known as Aviation Gin, is an American style gin distilled in Portland, Oregon. It became an official partner for Wrexham AFC in a global deal back in February 2021.


The collaboration announcement between Aviation and AFC in 2021 also coincided with the release of a limited edition Aviation Gin v Wrexham AFC bottle featuring the official club logo. 

Since the Deadpool star acquired a sizeable stake in the gin brand back in 2018, he has not been short of creativity and has become adept in his ability to create comedic crossover promotions involving multiple brands.

Perhaps we'll be seeing more of Rob at the Racecourse in the future - Thomas, that is.
