In 2016, Creator/RyanReynolds got a hell of a CareerResurrection and a new bout of fame portraying the titular Merc with the Mouth in ''Film/{{Deadpool}}''. Earning a lot more money than he ever did, he decided to pursue his personal passion project of owning his own gin label and in 2018 chose to buy a share of ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aviation_American_Gin Aviation American Gin]]'', which itself got a hell of a [[ColbertBump boost in name]] with Reynolds now an owner.

* ManlyTears: Reynolds personally crafts bottles of Aviation and goes tear-eyed after he finishes.
* OhCrap: Hugh Jackman when he realizes that Ryan was being sincere about calling a truce.

to:

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Reynolds was so amazed by Aviation that instead of buying another bottle, he bought the whole company and to prove his commitment, "'''''blew''''' every single bottle personally." After "'''''blowing'''''" away the remaining dust from making a signature bottle, Reynolds is reduced to tears as he narrates "can you ever go too far for your company?" The ad then ends with Andy King giving his approval and buying a glass.
* EveryoneHasStandards:[[invoked]] Reynolds uveils Aviation's new slogan "If you're not drinking Aviation American Gin, you have [[ShockingSwerve 6 months]] [[Letters2Numbers 2 live]]" and is horrified by how insane his marketing department has gotten.

* BeYourself: Richard Branson of Virgin Airlines tries to get Reynolds to tone down the Deadpool part of him when announcing their partnership, encouraging him to just be himself. Reynolds doesn't listen and Branson ends up storming off.



* DestroyTheProductPlacement: Reynolds partook in the Bottle Cap Challenge with a bottle of Aviation...only to kick it onto the floor and run away when things go downhill.

** Again, we're at the point where nobody knows where Ryan Reynolds begins and Deadpool ends.

* {{Crossover}}: With Creator/HughJackman with whom Reynolds temporarily called a truce over their [[SitcomArchnemesis rivalry]] so they can create ads for their respective businesses.

to:

* ContinuityNod: The set Gordon Reynolds interviews Ryan in is the same as the GQ one he did. Which probably means Creator/JakeGyllenhaal is still working as the boom mic operator off-screen.
* {{Crossover}}: With Creator/HughJackman with whom Reynolds temporarily called Laughing Man Coffee, owned by SitcomArchnemesis Creator/HughJackman. Calling a temporary truce over to their [[SitcomArchnemesis rivalry]] so they can create rivalry over social media, the two created ads for their respective each other's businesses.

Besides the obvious, we mention ''Deadpool'' because at this point, Reynolds ''[[BecomingTheMask is]]'' Deadpool and it's better to just let him do whatever the hell he wanted with marketing. Hence, when he bought Aviation, he proceeded to go full Wade Wilson with how he intended to promote his product: [[SelfDeprecating making a total ass of himself]] and just going full meta.

A lot of these ads, mostly starring and narrated by the man himself, can be found on Reynolds' own WebSite/{{Youtube}} channel [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCA3-nIYWu4PTWkb6NwhEpzg here]].

!Tropes:

* ApologeticAttacker: The farmers at Aviation apologize to each and every juniper berry picked before beating the hell out of them.
* BadassBeard: The Aviation farmers are practically vikings.
* {{Crossover}}: With Creator/HughJackman with whom Reynolds temporarily called a truce over their [[SitcomArchnemesis rivalry]] so they can create ads for their respective businesses.
* DestroyTheProductPlacement: Reynolds partook in the Bottle Cap Challenge with a bottle of Aviation...only to kick it onto the floor and run away when things go downhill.
* ManlyTears: Reynolds personally crafts bottles of Aviation and goes tear-eyed after he finishes.
* SelfDeprecation: If not for the gin, you'd think these ads were just about how much Reynolds hated himself.
** In "The Process," he professes to be a coward who is frightened by "non-celebrities" and is implied to be so depressed over his life choices that the gin's juniper is moistened by his own tears.
** His apparent twin brother Gordon does nothing but make fun of Ryan.
* SincerityMode: Reynolds created a sincere and uplifting ad for Hugh Jackman's company Laughing Man Coffee. Jackman is thrown for a loop because he figured their truce was a joke and had made a vitriolic ad for Aviation where he calls Reynolds a "complete and total fucking asshole" before letting a bottle of the gin completely spill out on a table.
* SitcomArchnemesis: Ryan Reynolds has one in the form of Creator/HughJackman.
