Actor Ryan Reynolds shared a cheeky new advertisement for his gin label Aviation Gin, and one of the actresses may look familiar.

On Friday evening, Reynolds tweeted the ad with a simple caption: "Exercise bike not included."

The gin advertisement is the latest response to Peloton's much-derided holiday ad, which features a husband giving his wife the $2,000 stationary bike for Christmas, and follows her documenting her year-long transformation.

Some viewers were confused or angered by the premise of the ad, while others said the main actress looked terrified. (The backlash was so swift that the actor who played the husband even spoke to Psychology Today detailing the impact of the internet mockery.)

The Aviation Gin ad features the same "Peloton girl" actress, a source told Fox Business. In the gin advertisement she is not on a bike, but rather sitting at a bar with a frightened expression, sandwiched between two concerned friends. 

"You're safe here," one friend says, before the trio cheers to "new beginnings," and another friend says, "you look great by the way."
