Film, football, fun - what's not to like? This one-minute plug for a new movie on streaming service Netflix in fact carries very little about the comedy drama 'Red Notice', but a remarkable amount of promotion for Welsh football club Wrexham.... Well, that's because Hollywood actor/producer Ryan Reynolds ('Free Guy', 'The Proposal', 'Deadpool') is the man in front of the camera. In recent years. he's carved a new niche as a one-man advert specialising in deadpan humour commercials and trailers for his surprising portfolio of activities: as well as movies, the popular Canadian has a stake in Aviation Gin and earlier this year bought up the oldest football club in Wales, Wrexham, with fellow actor Robert McElhenney III ('It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'). The two reportedly aim to take the team into the Premier League. This looks like a great boost - what do you think? Netflix isn't entirely eclipsed: Reynolds does mention his co-stars Gal Gadot and former wrestling champ 'The Rock' Dwayne Johnson - check out the cheeky Welsh language 'tribute'. Has Reynolds succeeded again in delivering an ad we watch just for the fun of it rather than for any movie or product, which is precisely what makes it effective?
