Hugh Jackman's commercial for Ryan Reynolds' gin company is hilariously brutal

Hugh Jackman's commercial for Ryan Reynolds' gin company is hilariously brutal”

The clip kicked off with the Wolverine actor saying: 'Hey everyone, Ryan and I recently called it a truce in our social media war and we promised to make ads for each other'.

"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. The commercial ended. The whole advertisement was quite complimentary to Hugh - and apparently, the older actor was shocked. The heartfelt ad shows children smiling, people happily drinking coffee and Jackman helping a farmer.

In these ads produced by Escape Velocity, Reynolds appears to act in good faith while gushing about "my friend, Hugh Jackman", who follows up with a foul-mouthed insult about his rival, and yes, it seems that Jackman wins this round, scripted (by Reynolds, Jackman and George Dewey) or not.

The war between Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds has continued, with Jackman recording a savage ad for Reynolds' gin company.

"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.

"Cost a million dollars", Reynolds says.

"Hugh could be behind such a hugh-oric company?" Jackman, however, didn't believe the truce was really over.

The clip starts rolling and opens with Jackman sitting in a library with a bottle of Aviation Gin on the table in front of him.

Since that time, Jackman and Reynolds, who co-starred in X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009, have continued their public trolling and found ways to poke fun at the other on social media.

After a few hilariously awkward moments, he continues, "The gin's pretty great, though". Jackman then tips over the bottle of alcohol and watches as it pours out across the table.

"I'm sorry man I didn't think the truce was actually real."

"Ryan Reynolds is a complete and total f*ck*ng *ssh*le", Hugh plainly said in the commercial. I'm not going to spoil things but watch the full video.
