Putting their feud aside, Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have created commercials for their respective brands — with hilariously mixed results.
Reynolds agreed to create an ad for Jackman’s Laughing Man, while Jackman would deliver a commercial for the “Deadpool” star’s Aviation Gin company.
“I’ve been working 24/7 on an ad for Hugh’s incredible coffee company, Laughing Man, and he’s been working hard, I imagine 24/7 on an Aviation Gin ad,” Reynolds says in a video posted to Twitter on Wednesday.
Debuting his Laughing Man ad first, Reynolds’ spot features a lush, green coffee plantation with an effusive voiceover expounding the virtues of the coffee and how the company helps local communities of growers.
“And ‘Hugh’ could be behind such a Hugh-roic company? You guessed it. My friend, Hugh Jackman, the loving and caring man who created Laughing Man,” the narration concludes.
“Wow. Man, that was really professional,” a stunned Jackman says in response.
“It cost a million dollars,” Reynolds adds.
“Um, I’m not quite ready to show mine yet,” an uncomfortable Jackman tells Reynolds, making excuses for his spot before the Canadian actor makes him roll it anyway.
The “Logan” star’s Aviation Gin ad opens with a suit-wearing Jackman seated on a leather couch, a bottle of the company’s gin in front of him.
“Ryan Reynolds is a real f***ing a**hole,” he says, adding, after a long pause, “The gin’s pretty great though.”
“I’ll have to try it someday,” he adds as he pours a full bottle of gin on the table.
When the ad ends, Reynolds appears open-mouthed in shock.
“Sorry, man,” Jackman tells him. “I didn’t think the truce was actually real.”
After this, we think the feud is back on.
