Actually, no. But this 45-seond ad plays it that way - does it grab your attention for either Ryan Reynolds' Aviation American Gin brand, or UK flag carrier British Airways? The airline, like many others, stood in need of some positive attention amid mass flight cancellations in the spring/summer of 2022: staff shortages and surging demand in the wake of Covid restrictions saw daily flight cancellations and travel chaos at airports. Canadian actor/comedian Ryan Reynolds -who's also become a one-man advertising machine - serves up his own particular style of humour in this mood-lightening 'safety video' aimed at promoting the fact that, as BA says, "customers can now enjoy the refreshing taste of Aviation American Gin on board, as well as in British Airways’ UK and US lounges".

Keywords: Ryan Reynolds British Airways, Aviation Gin and British Airways, BA in-flight refreshment, funny ads, Hollywood actors in ads

Definitely more an ad for Aviation Gon than for BA.
