Or, rather, the spokesrobot that’s been pretending to be Ryan Reynolds.
In a new video posted to Aviation Gin’s social media accounts, we learn that Reynolds has actually been a technologically-advanced gin selling robot.
“Hey there, it’s Ryan Reynolds from the same wooden background in my home,” says Reynolds-Bot. “I just wanted to address the big news about Aviation Gin being bought by Diageo. Now, obviously we’re super happy and proud for our little gin brand, but I just want to assure everyone that nothing is going to change; in fact that we’re going to be working harder than ever. And all of our success is really thanks to you guys. So from our home to yours, thank you.”
This is followed by him being turned off and a voiceover that says, “The Ryan Reynolds version 7.8 marketing machine has been discontinued. After 25 years on Soundstage B its mission to promote feature films, Canada, network television and smooth-tasting gin has been deemed successful. We would like to thanks Diageo, Elon Musk, the Canadian Tourism Board and Atari for their continuing support. And also viewers like you.”
Be sure to stick around to the very end.

Perhaps Diageo just decided that the Reynolds-Bot’s $278 million speaking fee was just more than they wanted to shell out.
