Ryan Reynolds is recognizing Father's Day with a clever out of office reply that pitches his gin company as a great gift idea for dad.
Set to his email at Aviation American Gin, which Reynolds purchased in February 2018, the reply gifts users with pictures of the actor with his product.

Reynolds wrote that out of office replies should be "short, sweet and NEVER overly personal or emotional."
"Thanks for your email. As the owner of Aviation American Gin, I take all emails seriously. Especially ones with pictures.
This is only my 2nd OUT OF OFFICE REPLY. From what I'm told, it should be short, sweet and NEVER overly personal or emotional."
@VancityReynolds You’re the best Ryan. I just got your out of office reply and I love it. Besides the signed bottle… https://t.co/504m6Px3Hs— Albertus L Magnus (@Albertus L Magnus) 1529104618.0
But that's of course totally relative, and Reynolds goes into a story about his strained relationship with his father, and how his gin in the perfect remedy for mending any family rift.
"Owning a gin company has been one of the great privileges of my life. And while it won't quite make up for the nonexistent relationship I had with my father, it always warms my heart to see others celebrating paternal relationships which have been built on trust, warmth, and totally natural amounts of eye contact. That's why this Father's Day is the perfect time to give your dad the best: Aviation American Gin.
While my own father may be long gone, the unspoken tension we shared is alive and well. But let me tell ya… if I could turn back time, I wouldn't be pouring Aviation Gin over his grave in the middle of the night. No sir… I'd be sittin' across from him, clinking glasses and having an effervescent giggle about the fact I now own the finest Gin company on planet earth. He might say stuff like, "Hey, this Gin is pretty damn good" and "Boy howdy, that's a gorgeous looking bottle" or, "I've never mentioned this before, but… you're enough.""

It concludes with Reynolds saying that while there are no second chances in life, purchasing his gin should be on everyone's gift list the first time around.
This Father's Day, you may not be able to give Dad a second chance, but you CAN get him a bottle Aviation American Gin. Or, if he died before either of you could even begin to comprehend the importance of closure, just get yourself a bottle.
Happy Father's Day,
