Last year, on April 14th, Ryan Reynolds gave Rob McElhenney a urinal for his birthday. On October 23rd, Rob one upped the birthday gift game by getting Ryan a blimp.
This year, Ryan set the bar high. Really high.
The Wrexham owner teamed up with composers Justin Paul and Benj Pasek to write, sing and perform a Broadway quality song about his friend and co-owner. The two minute video is stacked with cameos featuring everyone from Kaitlin Olsen, to Jason Kelce and Wrexham players, front office and fans.
How they kept this major production a secret is amazing.
If you ever wanted to know how to pronounce Rob’s last name correctly and even harder, how to spell it correctly, than this video is for you. It provides phonetic tips with rhymes and catchy lyrics, ” First it’s Mackle like a tackle… then Henny like a Penny… Mac instead of Mic.”
All of this while clips of Rob’s most iconic performances flash between pub scenes and funny photos.
