Rick Moranis just appeared with Ryan Reynolds in an ad for Mint Mobile
On Wednesday, Moranis caused a stir on social media by randomly cropping up in a Mint Mobile advertisement featuring a background of idyllic green fields.
"So why am I here?" Moranis asks.
"I'm just a huge fan," Reynolds quips back.
Moranis then swiftly exits the "mint" field, leaving Reynolds staring longingly after him.
"Rick Moranis," he whispers lovingly at the end.

"Rick Moranis came out of hiding to save 2020," one person wrote.
"Rick Moranis appearing in a random commer[ci]al, however silly it may seem, feels like a good omen for the rest of the year," another person wrote. "I don't make the rules."
"I don't care if I'm helping to sell something about which I know nothing, it's good to see Rick Moranis," yet another person wrote.
Even Ryan Reynolds was star-struck by Moranis's appearance.
Honestly, when he said yes, I wept.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) September 9, 2020
Of course, Canadians couldn't resist making a few well-placed jokes about Moranis's previous films.

Some people couldn't help but point out the irony in two beloved Canadian treasures selling a phone plan that Canadians can't actually get their hands on.
However, it seems that Reynolds is hoping to bring Mint Mobile north of the border soon.
