Eternal king of the Twitter trolls, Ryan Reynolds, has struck again after interrupting Hugh Jackman’s heartfelt birthday message to an unknown person.
The short video, which begins with Jackman clad in a dressing gown explaining how busy he is, is quickly taken over by Reynolds lying on what looks like a hotel bed, dressed head to toe as Deadpool, singing along to Tomorrow.
It’s quite the video.

More specifically Jackman says:
I’m really really busy doing… stuff… and [joining in with Reynolds] your bottom dollar that, yeah. Yeah don’t give him too much attention. That’s why I can’t be there. Have a great birthday.
He then dives into a fitting rendition of the Baha Men classic Who Let The Dogs Out.
The tweet has at the time of writing has received over 52,000 likes and over 15,00 retweets. It’s easy to see why.
It has also had one helluva lot of responses, with one bizarrely coming from TV wildman, Bear Grylls, who posted:
You guys. Stay well legends.
You guys! ? stay well legends… ??

Others replied saying:

And this isn’t even the only time this month Ryan Reynolds has absolutely smoked Hugh Jackman.
On April 11, Jackman posted a heartfelt message to his partner Deborra-lee Furness on Twitter, writing:
I believe in life we need to see and truly be seen by the most important people in our lives. Deb, from day one, we had that. 22 years later … it only gets deeper. You and the kids are the greatest gift I will ever receive. I love you a gazillion times around the world.
I gave this 3 months. Tops. I was wrong.
Jackman still hasn’t responded. OUCH!

2018’s been a weird one so far for Reynolds. He’s about to releasing the hotly-anticipated Deadpool 2 and been fending off private life prods from the press.
He and Lively have found themselves having to address split rumours recently, with media reports suggesting they’re struggling ‘to find quality time together’ because of their work schedules.
A source ‘close to the pair’ is reported to have told OK! Magazine they’re heading towards a divorce, even though it’s been proven they’re absolutely not.
Earlier in April, Lively fired a few shots at her husband, again proving they’re just fine, while not actually addressing the whispers.
The photo shows the couple smiling at each other, and it’s really sweet – but the caption, instead of mentioning how proud she is of her husband, is just a tribute to her hair.
If you’re a massive Deadpool fan, you may be interested to know that Reynolds is donating a pink suit for auction to raise money for a cancer charity.
The campaign has been launched to raise money for the charity F*ck Cancer – an organisation ‘committed to prevention and early detection of cancer’.
Reynolds said supporting the charity is a fight in which ‘everyone can be a hero’. He’s not wrong there.
You can find out more about the charity auction on Omaze.
