Unveiling the club’s official sponsor of its pre-season tour to the USA, insurance company Geico, the two Hollywood actors appear in the video, which is in the style of a segment from ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ – McElhenney’s sitcom.
It depicts McElhenney breaking the news of the sponsor to Reynolds – only for the latter to be confused and believe that Lionel Messi is signing for the club.

Reynolds then, jokingly of course, thinks that Geico is a gecko and questions whether the animal could play for the club. It’s another example of the club’s use of the Hollywood pair in their promotional activity, as they gear up for a season in League Two in 2023-24.
The Red Dragons are set to face Chelsea and Manchester United while on tour in the United States. They will also lock horns with American sides LA Galaxy II and Philadelphia Union.
