Wrexham AFC players recount boxes of cookies sent by Ted Lasso

An American comedy show sent a peace offer to Wrexham AFC in the form of 50 boxes of cookies.

Ted lasso on Apple TV + had mocked both the takeover of the club by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, as well as the Welsh independence movement.

The Hollywood duo hit back with a joke letter demanding that “2 large boxes of Ted Lasso cookies” be sent to the club “to avoid legal action.”

The club have now confirmed that legal action has fortunately been avoided, tweeting: “A man of his word, thank you @TedLasso! Better late than never, 50 forgiveness boxes are gratefully accepted.

He added: “Ps, tell Colin, mae’r ddraig Gymreig yn gryf ynddo!” which means “the Welsh dragon is strong in him”.

The show follows the titular coach who is unexpectedly recruited to coach English Premier League side AFC Richmond, despite having no previous association football experience.

In a recent episode “Rainbow,” Higgins’ character, played by Jeremy Swifts, joked that he “can’t say whether the club purchase is a joke or not,” referring to the takeover. by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney in Wrexham.

In another scene, one of AFC Richmond’s players, Welshman Colin Hughes, is invited to use social media. When he agrees to post on Instagram, he is told: “Do you think you can make that one post not about Welsh independence?”

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney then responded to the joke about them on the show, both sharing tweets on Saturday with a letter jokingly threatening legal action against Apple TV +.

“Come to our attention”

In their letter, they wrote: “It was brought to our attention that in a recent episode of Ted Lasso our very real ownership of Wrexham AFC was called into question by an otherwise beloved character named ‘Higgins’.

“While we have no low regard for the incomparable Jeremy Swift and we are honored to be mentioned on the platform which has brought us high quality programming spanning Mythic Quest Season 1 to Season 1. 2 of Mythic Quest, we must insist that you cease and desist from casting any doubt on our commitment to the club, the fans and the entire Wrexham community.

McElhenney co-created and stars in Mythic Quest, which also airs on Apple TV +.
