Ryan Reynolds’ owned liquor company, Aviation American Gin Company, and Virgin Atlantic have entered into a new and glorious partnership, and now Aviation American Gin will be served on all Virgin flights.
But however exciting you find this news, you wouldn’t know it from the hilarious sketch video that Reynolds did with Richard Branson announcing the new partnership…
In the video, Ryan Reynolds hilariously misuses business terms, much to Branson’s chagrin. He proudly declares that the two companies are merging, to which Branson quickly replies that ‘really it’s more of a partnership’. But the coup de grace is when Reynolds suggests that the new company will be called ‘ Aviavirgination’, prompting Branson to walk off the set. This video is only the first of many upcoming spots that will advertise this new relationship.
People thought it was hilarious…
I honestly couldn’t love @VancityReynolds anymore

Though some found the new relationship with Richard Branson… questionable…
Did you ask him about him suing the British Public Health Service ?

This probably seems funnier to non-brits. But Branson is not a laughing matter. Sorry.

I expected you to keep better company tbh sir. He sued the NHS recently and won. Dismantling our health service in relative secrecy

The man who sues the #NHS. What a great partner to have.

Richard Branson is a controversial figure in the UK. He sued the national health service after one of his companies, Virgin Care, lost out on a £82 million contract to provide children’s health services.
But most just made Deadpool references…
