Although it went unnoticed by many, with the release of the Avengers: End Game trailer last came one of the greatest pranks of our generation. A prank so well-done that even Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds had to take notice.
As the trailer released last week, a Deadpool fan named @GuyInChair bought the domain name advengersenedgame.com. The site was set up to redirect Marvel fans looking for the new trailer to Deadpool’s Once Upon a Deadpool. Hilarious, no? Confused fans everywhere looking to get a glimpse of Tony Stark and the other Avengers instead got a face-full of Deadpool!
Even better, Deadpool himself took notice! Ryan Reynolds (a self-proclaimed prankster) thought so much of the joke that he recently sent GuyInChair a special edition of his privately-owned gin, Aviation!
Included in the briefcase carrier that carried the gin was a travel cocktail kit and a set of Master & Dynamic headphones! Cool, no? Immediately, however, GuyInChair utilized the momentum he had gained as leverage in a hilarious exchange which discussed the ransom of the site domain! His request? Two tickets to the final Avengers premiere! That’s not asking too much in our opinion!
Of course, Reynolds had to let the “hero of our generation (GuyinChair)” know how he felt about the trickster’s ploy. And he did so by taking to twitter!
This isn’t to say I’m proud of what you did. Just that I happen to love you.

This is easily one of the funniest things we’ve had a chance to write about in a long time, and we are grateful for fans like GuyInChair and down-to-earth celebrities such as Ryan, who can take it all in stride. Appreciating the joy and often hilarious adventures that human life offers is not lost on these two, and we will absolutely be lobbying for GuyInChair to get his premiere tickets! Looking at you Deadpool…make it so!
