Ryan Reynolds Interviews Himself As 'Evil Twin' To Promote New Gin
| Last updated
Everyone loves it when celebs are prepared to take the piss out of themselves, and if Ryan Reynolds has proved anything over the years, it's that he knows he's as good a target for savage trolling as anyone.
Take this new clip, made to promote his new range of Aviation American Gin - yep, we were as surprised as you but it's probably not the strangest left turn made by an actor in recent times.
Lest we forget, the Canadian Deadpool star now lives in a country that elected Arnold Schwarzenegger to office.
Anyway, in the clip he interviews himself in the guise of his 'evil twin' Gordon (wait a minute... Gordon... gin... evil... this couldn't possibly be a sly potshot at a rival company, could it?).
"You invented gin?" Ryan's alter-ego asks him (confusing, this, isn't it?).
"No, you dumb fuckfire," he replies. "Gin's been around for hundreds of years. Aviation is just a craft gin from Portland, Oregon."
"Portland! Wow," muses 'Gordon' in response. "You'd think they'd make port."
Bit of a reach, but whatever. Ryan revealed that he'd bought shares in American Aviation back in February, declining to say exactly how much he bought of the company or for how much.
However, a tweet from the company revealed that they're all calling him the owner/boss so we can probably safely assume that it's a significant amount.

It's just the latest in a never-ending stream of trolling from the 41-year-old. Just yesterday, he popped up on Instagram with some savage take downs of the current trend for people wearing small sunglasses.
The post took direct aim at a trend that seems to have swept across the world now that winter is over and the sun is staying out for longer.
The picture shows him wearing a pair of ridiculously small sunglasses - which we're guessing belong to one of his daughters - with the caption: "I'm really into the whole tiny sunglasses trend. Thanks for your support everyone!"
Not his most savage work, but trolling is serious business, and Ryan seems to have a busy schedule of zingers to be issued. Carry on, mate.
