If you watched the Christmas film SPIRITED on Apple TV+, you may remember a very elaborate musical number featuring Ryan Reynolds' character singing about the evils of artificial Christmas Trees. This got us wondering what Ryan Reynolds actually knows about artificial Christmas Trees.
So, we reached out to ask him and were shocked by his response. Or lack thereof.
Before you go adding him to any naughty list, we know Ryan Reynolds is far too busy taking over the business world one small company at a time to answer every Christmas Elf that reaches out. So, we decided to go to the next best source - ChatGPT.
For those who don't know, ChatGPT is an intelligent language model that can accurately write text content based on a series of user prompts. We recently wrote about how ChatGPT and artificial intelligence can be used in holiday decor.
Ryan Reynolds actually filmed an ad for Mint Mobile that was written by ChatGPT with the prompt asking for the copy to be in the style of Ryan Reynolds. The ad was pretty effective and Reynolds' himself seemed to approve of the results.
So, we figured if it's good enough for him...
Hey there, holiday-loving friends! It's your favorite actor, gin connoisseur, and proud Canadian, Ryan Reynolds, here to talk about one of the most important things about Christmas: the tree. Specifically, the artificial kind. I mean, who has time to water a real tree these days? Not me, that's for sure.
For those of you who are all about that convenience, most artificial trees come pre-lit with built-in lights, so you don't have to worry about stringing them up yourself. Plus, you won't have to deal with that one strand of lights that always goes out, and you can just focus on more important things, like sitting on a fat guy’s lap and telling him what you want for Christmas.
Since there are so many types of artificial Christmas trees out there, it can be tough to choose just one. So, let's break it down.
First up, we've got the PVC tree. Now, I don't know about you, but when I hear PVC, I think of those pipes you see under the sink. But nope, PVC trees are just as Christmassy as any other tree out there. They're lightweight, so you can easily move them around your home without throwing out your back. And they come in all sorts of colors, so you can choose whatever shade of green floats your boat.
Next, we've got the PE tree. That's polyethylene, in case you were wondering. This type of tree is perfect for those of you who are looking for a more realistic look. The needles are molded plastic, which means they feel and look more like the real thing. Just be careful not to water it, unless you want to electrocute yourself.
Now, if you're like me and you love a good snow day, a flocked tree might be the way to go. These trees are covered in a white powder to make it look like they're covered in snow. It's like a winter wonderland, right in your living room! Just don't try to make snow angels underneath it, unless you want to end up with a face full of plastic needles.
If you’re feeling a little adventurous and like to think outside the box, an upside-down tree might be the way to go. I know, I know, it sounds crazy, but hear me out. With an upside-down tree, you've got more floor space for presents and all your other holiday decorations. Plus, if you've got pets, you won't have to worry about them drinking the tree water, because there won't be any. Just be prepared to explain to your grandparents why the tree is on the ceiling.
If you're looking for something a little more high-tech, you might want to check out the fiber optic tree. The branches light up in all sorts of different colors, and it looks like a cross between a Christmas tree and a disco ball. It's like your own personal holiday light show.
For those who like to keep things a little more low-key, there's the Charlie Brown tree. You know the one I'm talking about - it's scrawny, it's droopy, and it's got about five branches. But hey, it's a classic, and you can always prop it up with a block of wood.
Then there’s the inflatable Christmas tree. That's right, you heard me. It's like having your very own bouncy castle in your living room. Just be careful not to bounce too high, or you might hit the ceiling.
And last but not least, we've got the slim Christmas tree. Well, in a way it’s least. This type of tree is perfect for those of you who live in small spaces because it's just like a regular Christmas tree, but on a diet. And if you're someone who's always trying to watch what you eat, you can tell your friends that your Christmas tree is an inspiration to you. Want to go even slimmer? Try a pencil tree. It's like a slim Christmas tree, but someone took a big old pencil sharpener to it. I guess if you're really into geometry, this one's for you.
So, there you have it, folks, a breakdown of the different types of artificial Christmas trees. Just remember, no matter what type of tree you choose, it's all about spending time with the people you love, and making memories that'll last a lifetime. And, of course, making sure you get enough eggnog. Cheers!
Classic Ryan Reynolds.
We think ChatGPT did a pretty good job this time around. You can definitely hear his voice in there and we like to think that real life Ryan is also an amateur artificial Christmas Tree enthusiast. We are also quite intrigued by the concept of an indoor inflatable Christmas Tree bouncy castle. We'll have some elves look into it!
