Hollywood superstar turned celebrity marketer Ryan Reynolds has broken his latest video campaign, with a little help from Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan.

Maximum Effort Productions, the Reynolds-founded film production and digital marketing company, is raising awareness of the 70% of online shopping carts that fall at the final payment hurdle on behalf of its new client Bolt.

The one-click checkout tech company claims to have a ready-made solution for frustrated brands in the form of a proprietary network that allocates a unique shopper identity for each user across a multitude of member retailers – ensuring that first-time shoppers enjoy the same ease of purchase as returning consumers.
