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

At least, that's what it was supposed to be but it would appear that not everyone got the memo. We'll see how the Deadpool star follows up.

The latest escapade saw the Vancouver-born actor on the tail end of a holiday prank, courtesy of Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal.

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.

It was only ever going to end one way, wasn't it?

"Yeah, we sure did".

Reynolds' ad for Laughing Man is a beautifully produced thing, playing up Jackman's heroic roles in the X-Men universe as well as the company's goal to improve the lives of coffee farmers. If they do, they might want to let Reynolds write the script.

Cutting back to the studio, we see Reynolds' face of complete shock and betrayal while Jackman says he didn't think that the truce was actually genuine. He even praises his mate for his charity work, highlighting the fact that money from the sales of the coffee go to good causes.

Reynolds had a simple Twitter reaction to Jackman's ad: "F for effort".

Jackman then tells Reynolds he's "not quite ready" to show his ad yet and it still needs editing, but Reynolds says to roll it.

Let's just say, the Aussie didn't put quite as much effort into his advert as his pal. Jackman, on the other hand, poured out an entire bottle of his rival's gin and dissed him for the camera.

Nothing compares to the viciousness of the fake feud between Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel, but Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman do their best to score second place with a faux rivalry.

After a few hilariously awkward moments, he continues, "The gin's pretty great, though. I'll have to try it someday".
