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

We sort of want this ‘feud’ to keep going We sort of want this ‘feud’ to keep going

"As a gesture of goodwill, I'm gonna make a handsome ad for his company, Laughing Man Coffee". The commercial ended. The whole advertisement was quite complimentary to Hugh - and apparently, the older actor was shocked.

The Deadpool star posted the short video to his Twitter page, with the caption "F for effort".

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. Ryan and Hugh buried the hatchet and chose to join forces for the greater good - to promote their gin and coffee companies, respectively.

Last week, the pair announced they'd called a truce on their longtime game of trolling each other by creating an online video for each other's brands, Reynolds' Aviation Gin and Jackman's Laughing Man Coffee Company, respectively. Jackman tries to stall for time, saying that his commercial isn't ready to be shown, but Reynolds won't take no for an answer.

"Hugh could be behind such a Hugh-roic company", Ryan asked, then chuckled. "The loving and caring man who created Laughing Man. Make every cup count". "Thanks, it cost a million dollars", Reynolds shot back.

The new clip rolls and Jackman can be seen sitting in a library with a bottle of Aviation Gin on the table.

"Ryan Reynolds is a real f***ing a**hole", he says, adding, after a long pause, "The gin's pretty great though".

"Wow, man, that was really professional", Jackman tells Reynolds after the commercial wraps. Reynolds plays up the heroic person behind the company, Hugh Jackman, and even highlights that portions of the profits go to charitable causes.

"Ryan and I recently called it a truce in our social media war", Jackman said.

"Ryan Reynolds is a complete and total [bleep]", Jackman said in his ad.

So on February 6, (February 7 AEDT), they released a joint video unveiling their new projects and watched them together, for the first time.
