Sunday 20 June, in just over a week’s time, will be Father’s Day. Have you prepared any surprises and greeting cards?
If these things are not for you, don’t worry, there is an alternative solution, an unusual gift that you can make by following a few simple instructions. It’s The Vasectomy – the drink created by Ryan Reynolds with Aviation Gin – a refreshing cocktail made with tonic, cranberry and lemon.
If the name of this drink seems inappropriate to you, don’t worry, it’s all a provocation and the full commercial will show you why.
“First, fill a tall glass with ice the way children fill our lives with such joy. Next, pour 1 ounce of cranberry juice, sweet just like their little smiles. Then pour 3 ounces of tonic, so bubbly, just like I feel every day I wake up after a long, full night’s sleep. Now, add a dash of lemon juice fresh, if you have a few minutes to squeeze one, or store bought if the little ones have you running around a bit today, the little scamps. Finally, we’re going to add one and a half ounces of Aviation american Gin, the world’s highest rated gin for the world’s highest rated job: dad.“
Ryan Reynolds guides us through each step of creating the perfect drink, highlighting the joys and sorrows of fatherhood. The Vasectomy is the drink for stressed-out fathers, those who share a lack of sleep and time and live with constant noise and demands.
Father of three girls and successful actor, Ryan Reynolds shows us that, in advertising, comedy is sacred and that it is an important mechanism to impress the audience and sell.
