Ryan Reynolds pays tribute to Wrexham in hilarious new Netflix video

The Hollywood star, and proud owner of Wrexham AFC, cannot stop speaking about the club and the town.

Hollywood icon and proud co-owner of Wrexham FC, Ryan Reynolds, shows his love for the club and the town in a hilarious new “trailer on a trailer” to promote his new film.

During the sixty-seven second video, Ryan pays tribute to plenty of popular local figures while promoting Red Notice.

Joking that he advertised his new film on a big screen towed by a trailer through the streets of Wrexham, he said: "I personally can't stand those celebrities who take advantage of filming opportunities to promote their personal interests.

"Thank you to lfor Williams for putting our Red Notice trailer on their trailers."

Also making an appearance in the video are Wrexham AFC stars Luke Young and Ben Tozer, Emily Gibbs, cake maker Emma Wilson, from Emzcakes in Wrexham, and the Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr Ronnie Prince.

There’s even a cameo appearance for Wrexham-born former Wales international Robbie Savage who is a bit rude about Ryan’s co-stars in Red Notice, describing them in Welsh as: “Two farts in a jam pot”.

Netflix sent a crew to Wrexham last week to engage with some of the town's well known personalities.

Rob Small, the Head of Sales at Ifor Williams Trailers Group of companies said: "It was all very hush hush. When Netflix arrived at our site at Boundary Park in Deeside I had five members of staff, one from each of our sites, ready for action.

“All I was allowed to do before hand was ask them whether they would like to be involved with something to do with Wrexham football club, would they mind having their photographs taken, would they mind wearing their Wrexham football shirts and would they mind having a lateral flow test.

“It was a great pleasure to meet the Netflix team on the day of the filming when the producer and director gave our staff a briefing before the filming which it took about an hour and a half."

It’s not the first time that Ryan and Rob McElhenney have put Ifor Williams Trailers front and centre.

The Tinsel Town duo announced their takeover of the club with a spoof sales film for one of the company’s horseboxes, racking up five million views on Twitter.

The horsebox also featured in their video to unveil global social media brand TikTok as the new front of shirt sponsors of Wrexham AFC.

Materials planner, Hannah Philpott was similarly excited to be involved in the filming having been born and raised to be Wrexham fan.

She said: "It was all very top secret and really surreal to be honest. I ended up getting a T-shirt with Ryan Reynolds’ face on it.

"They showed us a clip of the film on the big screen and I must say it was a very action-packed scene with Ryan and The Rock. I’m definitely going to be watching the film.”
