For a large market town in North Wales, Wrexham has been receiving a great deal of media attention as of late, thanks to the buyout of its football team Wrexham AFC by A-list actors, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. So, when a mysterious Hollywood-style Wrexham sign turned up on the hill above the town, it was clear who the culprits were.

Only, the stunt didn't actually have Reynolds or McElhenney's name on it. The plot thickened last week when Free Guy star Reynolds tweeted: 'I wish I'd thought of that. But if I were to really dig into it, I wish I wasn't someone who wished they'd thought of that'.

After the mystery of the Wrexham sign caused a stir, it has now been revealed as a stunt by Dark Horses for Vanarama National League, the lowest division in the English football pyramid, which claimed ownership of the stunt with a massive banner above the sign, one day before the first game of the season.
