Wolverine and Deadpool—sorry—Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds called a truce to their long-standing (playful) social media feud at the end of January, but old habits die hard. After the two announced they'd celebrate their friendship by making ads for each other's companies, the whole thing fell apart. Fast.
Outside of Deadpool and other onscreen projects, Reynolds is the face of his own Aviation Gin, which is pretty well known for its outrageous commercials. Jackman launched his own coffee brand, Laughing Man Coffee, in 2011. So when the two set aside their differences to make commercial spots for one another, Reynolds came through and made Laughing Man quite the ad. He goes into full detail about the quality of Laughing Man's coffee, the good work the company does, and what a loving and caring man his friend Hugh Jackman is. A+ on the assignment.
And Jackman... well. Here's a screenshot.
Yeah. That's the positive part, too. In his ad for Aviation Gin, Jackman says, "Ryan Reynolds is a complete and total fucking asshole... The gin's pretty great though. I'll have to try it some day," before pouring the entire bottle out on the coffee table. Cue Aviation Gin logo. Scene.
A true masterpiece.
There you have it: if you're a coffee guy and you're looking for a cup of joe whose owner donates a portion of the proceeds to scholarship funds and making the world better, you know what to buy. And if you're looking for gin made by a f**king asshole, then you're all set as well. Check out the hilarious clip below and join us in hoping that the feud never ends.
