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.
Today (February 06, 2019), they released a joint video unveiling their new projects and watched them together, for the first time.
The pair both posted a video on Instagram in which Jackman says: “Ryan and I recently called a truce in our social media war and we promised to make ads for each other.”
“We sure did,” says Reynolds. “I’ve been working hard 24/7 on an ad for Hugh’s incredible coffee company Laughing Man, and he’s been working hard, 24/7 I imagine, on an Aviation Gin ad.”
Reynolds’ ad is first and shows shots of lush hills, laughing children and the beans being processed as the star talks about how wonderful his friend’s coffee is.
He calls Jackman’s firm “Hugh-roic” and says it’s the “best tasting coffee in the market” and that it lifts up communities.
As it ends, a stunned-looking Jackman notes that it was “really professional,” and Reynolds says: “It cost a million dollars.”
Jackman then declares he is not ready to show his advert, but Reynolds insists.
It starts to play and shows Hugh Jackman sitting on a chair then suddenly saying: “Ryan Reynolds is a complete and total fucking arsehole,” with the sound turned off while he swears.
“The gin is pretty great though, I’ll have to try it someday.”
He then tips up the bottle and lets the alcohol pour all over the table in front of him.
Reynolds looks shocked as it ends, and Jackman mutters: “I’m sorry man I didn’t think the truce was actually real…”
