These days, Ryan Reynolds is not only a household name in Hollywood, but also a serious businessman thanks to his investments in companies like Mint Mobile. Of course, what he’s done over the past two years to promote these businesses can be called anything but serious, though no one can deny that his comedic approach has yielded great results.
In fact, using celebrity colleagues like Hugh Jackman and their fake public feud for Aviation Gin commercials was nothing short of a stroke of genius. It is only recently the dead Pool The star scored another successful and viral advert by apparently having one of his daughters lead Mint Mobile’s latest ad. But it seems that when it comes to marketing the telecommunications company, Ryan is just starting to warm up.
Yesterday, fellow Canadian actor and comedian Dave Foley took to Twitter to ask Ryan if the move to Mint Mobile would be enough to land him a spot in one of the company’s future commercials. Reynolds was quick to accept the offer and, within five hours, posted a photo of Foley shooting the next Mint Mobile commercial.
Now I know what you’re thinking; there’s no way it wasn’t pre-arranged. Because otherwise, even for someone as eccentric as Reynolds who generally undermines every rulebook convention, it must set some sort of world record.
That being said, we’re talking about Ryan Reynolds here, so at least on paper, this definitely sounds like something he would do.
