Chris Evans Raves about New Ad Campaign from Ryan Reynolds. With 5 words, Chris Evans, aka “America’s Ass”, shares his admiration for Ryan Reynolds’ ad game lately, by simply stating “This dude is killing it.”
Ryan Reynolds is more than just a funny guy. The actor and business man recently became the new minty fresh owner of Mint Mobile. Mint Mobile is a mobile service that offers several service agree’mints’ ranging from $15/month to $45/month, depending on the promotion being offered at the time. Ryan made a bold move, and unlike many other advertisers at the moment, decided to use the companies resources to better benefit its new customers. He took out a full page advertisement in the New York Times and shared his vision for new customers, without wasting the financial resources to show a 30 second- 1 minute commercial during Super Bowl LIV.
“On Sunday, some companies will spend over $5 million dollars to advertise in a game so expensive I can’t even mention its name lest we summon its army of lawyers,” Reynolds wrote in Mint Mobile’s NY Times ad. “As the new owner of Mint Mobile, that’s a HARD no. Mint offers premium wireless service for just $15 dollars a month, so we could literally give away over 300,000 months of free service and still save money. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Sign up for Mint Mobile after kickoff and before the final whistle, and get 3 months of Mint Mobile service free.”
Fellow Marvel Alumni, Chris Evans, himself is starring in at least one of these famed Super Bowl commercials. The commercial is named, “Smaht Pahk” and in the ad, various Boston based actors come together to showcase a new feature that allows cars to park themselves, including: Chris Evans, Rachel Dratch, John Krasinski, and Boston’s very own Papi. You can check out the new Hyundai commercial below:
That has not stopped Evans, however, from sharing his love for Reynolds’ advertising tactics on Twitter. Ryan reciprocated the sentiment by responding with, “Thank you, [America’s] Ass. Love, [Canada’s] Jackass.”
Ryan’s bold move is a brilliant take on how a company should be reaching out to new customers, and truly putting them first. Who’s wouldn’t be excited to get 3 months of free service?
What do you think of Ryan’s idea? Will you be switching to Mint Mobile during Super Bowl LIV? What are your plans for the big game? Which commercials are you looking forward to viewing? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
