The 43-year-old Deadpool star cheekily shared a false receipt from The Royal Collection’s website, which is in competition to his company Aviation Gin, to Instagram on Tuesday.
Under his own billing information, Reynolds added: “1 Upmanship Dr., Notcoolington, WTF FML” and tagged his own brand.
Reynolds previously joked upon meeting McCartney in 2018: “Have you ever had a dream to meet someone so badly and somehow it comes true? You’re welcome, Paul” alongside a selfie of the musician.
Many of Reynolds’ 35.9 million Instagram followers chuckled at the fake address, which was comprised of a combination of British pop culture references.

Her favorite tipple is gin and Dubonnet – one part gin and two parts Dubonnet, with ice cubes and a slice of lemon – which she is said to occasionally enjoy as an aperitif before lunch.
All profits from sales of the gin go to the Royal Collection Trust, a charity which maintains and displays the large collection of royal artifacts from artwork to furniture held in trust by the Queen for her heirs and the nation.
