If you thought Ryan Reynolds was going to stop at making fun of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal exit this week, please, I beg you, think again. On Tuesday, the Deadpool actor posted a photo of an order he placed with Buckingham Palace. It was for the Queen's newly announced "Small Batch" gin made from the herbs and flowers in her garden.

In case you were unaware, Reynolds also owns a gin company, Aviation Gin, that is known for its expert marketing campaigns – like this one with the Peloton girl. Apparently the actor sees the royal gin as competition and so he did the one thing he does best: he trolled them.

In the photo of the order that he captioned "Pre-ordered," Reynolds put his address as "1 Upsmanmuch Dr. Notcoolington WTF FML United Kingdom." He then included Sir Paul McCartney and, uh, One Direction in the joke and added the former-Beatle as the shipping address (the Queen's gin only ships in the U.K.). The address for McCartney was "221 Baker Street, Downtown Abbey Rd. 1D4 LYF United Kingdom."

As for the payment method, that was "Loonie." And the shipping? "Royal Space Force."

Luckily for Ryan, this gin is limited edition and not even available in the U.S. We have a feeling everything will work out just fine.
