Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds (opens in new tab)' relationship is built on a solid foundation of equal parts endless love and ruthless trolling (opens in new tab). Today, Blake gifted the Internet with the latest example of the latter.
Ryan opened himself up to the teasing when he shared a series of posts (both on his Instagram Story and on his grid) about a new accolade awarded to his gin brand, Aviation Gin. The honor came courtesy of the drink experts at VinePair (opens in new tab), who shared an infographic ranking the best celebrity spirits, which included Aviation Gin in the top spot.

"On the day of @therock’s much anticipated Teremana Tequila launch, I’d like to congratulate myself for winning @vinepair’s best tasting celebrity alcohol brand. See ya next year, DJ... Love, @aviationgin #Flex," Ryan wrote in a post along with the infographic.
That alone would (probably) not have prompted Blake to troll (opens in new tab). But, Ryan then followed that post up with a series of nearly-identical posts to his Instagram Story, prompting his wife to screenshot said posts and deface them with troll-y comments.
See for yourself:
"My husband has no chill," she wrote in her first Story.
Then, she shared a screenshot of Ryan's second Story (opens in new tab) post about the ranking—and pointed out that it had been shared very shortly after the first: "…Literally 37 mins later."
Finally, Blake shared a screenshot from the official Aviation Gin Instagram (opens in new tab)'s Story, promoting the same ranking. "…In case you missed it?" she wrote.
Well played, as usual, Blake.
