Who else is already tired of hearing about pumpkin spice?
At least according to Hollywood hero Ryan Reynolds it is.
“It’s nearly fall, which means the entire universe will once again be losing its mind for pumpkin spice,” Ryan Reynolds begins his latest video for Aviation Gin.
“Well, not at Aviation. Not on my watch.
“Let’s make a Negroni.
“First, take one part each, of bitter red liqueur. And sweet vermouth. Pour over ice. Take a pumpkin spiced cinnamon stick, and shove it right up your [expletive].
“Then, we add one part Aviation American Gin,” Reynolds continues. “And stir.
“Then while stirring, we’re going to take a moment to ponder, why it is that once a year for two or three months, we lose our [expletive] mind over pumpkin spice. What the [expletive] are we doing, people?!
“I’m not sending my kids off to school with a [expletive] cumin yogurt in their lun…”
The video then cuts to a “Technical Difficulties” graphic.
When the video resumes, we see Reynolds adding a orange peel garnish to his drink, adding “[expletive] you, pumpkin spice.”
After another graphic displays on the screen for Negroni Week, Reynolds returns to his position behind the counter for a public apology to all the pumpkin spice fans, and their “powerful political lobby.”
Counted among those who appreciated Ryan Reynolds’ pumpkin spice trend on Instagram were Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista, who commented with hearts and laughing emojis.
They weren’t alone.
“As an ex-barista, this resonates with me on such a deep spiritual level,” read one comment on X.
“The man knows what he’s talking about,” read another comment.
“@VancityReynolds speaks my fall language,” someone else praised.
“This goes for beer too folks, thank you @VancityReynolds,” another fan wrote.
