This month in content marketing, Ryan Reynolds gave an 84-year-old her first “legal” drink, Brazzers decided that porn needs musical duets, and Vitamin Water just wants you to play a game about hugs from grandma.

Ryan Reynolds Serves Gin to a Leap Baby

Arlene Manko was born in 1936, but on a leap day. So that made her birthday in 2020 her twenty-first birthday. Cue marketing machine Ryan Reynolds, who decided to buy Manko her first “legal” drink, which, of course, would be his brand, Aviation Gin. It’s pretty funny, so give it a watch.

Shockingly, pornstars Lacy Lennon and Quinton James are good at singing.
