Ryan Reynolds is known for his quirky sense of humor.

His latest stunt has him promoting his own gin company—in what might be the strangest way possible.


The actor's company has already been prone to humor.

Most notably, he teamed up with Hugh Jackman to create commercials for both Aviation Gin and Laughing Man Coffee, the latter being Jackman's company. The clip was a huge hit, garnering over six million views on Youtube.

However, Reynolds' latest promotion has taken his brand of comedy to the next level—actually writing his own review of his product on Amazon.

The post itself is written under the pseudonym of Champ Nightengale and details his fake experience with the gin.

The review reads:

"I just tried Aviation Gin for the first time."
"Normally, I don't gravitate towards celebrity brands, but I'd read the Gin was one of the highest rated ever."

The story then plunges into a wild ride that no one was ready for.

"What did I hate about it? I wish they'd provide some kind of warning about how much you're supposed to have. I had a lot... and after a while I felt really great. Eventually, that bubbly and illusory sense of well-being turned into a bit of a blur."
"When I woke up the next day, I mentioned to my wife Linda that last night must have been a REAL blowout because I slept in my clothes. Even my shoes!"

Reynolds/Nightengale continued:

"I also noticed it was really hard to look out the window at the Seattle skyline. Partly because of the bright sun (I've always been sensitive to light) but also because I don't live in Seattle."
"I live in Coral Gables, Florida. Also, it's important to note, until that morning, I'd never met anyone named Linda."

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
