In Australia, any booze ad that came with the message “here’s an oversized bottle of spirits to help you forget your problems” would swiftly – and probably rightly – cop an immediate ban and whack over the knuckles from those do-gooder regulators.
So, B&T’s not too sure of the morals and ethics around Ryan Reynolds’ new spot for his own gin brand, Aviation Gin.
With American kids returning to school following the summer break, but not actually returning thanks to COVID, Reynolds’ new ad flogs an oversized 1.75 litre variant of the product to get parents through home schooling.
“It can help with a variety of subjects: fourth-grade geography, whatever the fuck new math is, and revisiting your own, long-forgotten middle school traumas,” the 43-year-old actor teases.
It’s yet more wonderful fun from the Deadpool star; however, B&T is predicting some backlash from the PC brigade over this one.
Check out the fun below. And if you want to write a complaint in B&T’s comment section, we’ll be sure to pass it on to Mr Reynolds.
