When iconic stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney took over the Wrexham AFC in 2021, the world of Tinseltown changed dramatically. From there, a massive Hollywood and sports relationship was formed, which worked wonderfully for the Red Dragons. The actor’s fame played a crucial role in this regard. After placing the team on the map in the National League, the actors are now competing for their own humorous crown.

In a recent video, Reynolds and McElhenney are taped fighting for the coveted “Mr. Wrexham” title, in a very amusing fashion.

While comedy is normally Reynolds’s forte, McElhenney gave him a run for his money this time. The celebs are routinely spotted engaging in a variety of online squabbles, but this one is rising in ranks to be a fan favorite. In the meantime, the Deadpool actor took to his X (previously Twitter) account and released a video with the statement “The title of Mr. Wrexham is currently disputed” and asked the public to visit Wales. The actor also mentioned the travel company Expedia in the picture, indicating their collaboration.

The celebrities can be seen in the film arguing about who is the true “Mr. Wrexham.” In the entire playful shenanigan, McElhenney suggested the viewers “tour the magic hills and charming Wrexham Village.” Reynolds, on the other hand, preferred the town’s “beautiful churches and historic architecture.” The two artists can turn any commercial into a comedy with their quick wit and comic timing.

The Deadpool actor is no stranger to the commercial genre, having already done a lot of solid work. Further, after taking over the club, the actor made sure that McElhenney appeared in most commercials he produced. However, in his Aviation Gin commercial, the actor was replaced by singer Rob Thomas. The reason why McElhenney was not included in the ad was that he is the proprietor of Four Walls whiskey, which precludes him from participating in the competition.

The Deadpool actor revealed that Rob McElhenney was “not legally allowed to appear in Aviation Gin commercials.” Furthermore, he had to replace him with the “other Rob” and have him sing in Welsh, adding a touch of his signature comedy. Not only that, but the 30-second commercial is sitting proudly at a hundred and fifty thousand views on YouTube.
