Hugh Jackman Pokes Fun At Ryan Reynolds Towed Truck

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman never seem to engage in anything other than full-on Hollywood banter.

Over the years, these two stars have wound each other up beyond belief, so much so that Reynolds didn't think twice at hijacking the Aussie's heartfelt anniversary tribute on social media.

And while both recently claimed a "truce" on their social media war, Reynolds broke protocol by parking one of his Aviation Gin trucks outside Jackman's cafe with his face on it. 

The Aussie star then hit back, posting a photo of it being towed away to his 26.9 million Instagram followers.

He captioned it,  "Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy." But Reynolds hit back, writing, "What? I have a very elaborate designated driver."

Aviation Gin even got in on the action. "We're dedicated to all Aviation Gin personnel having paid time off to relax from the hard work we're doing every day...even the trucks."

Of course, the real root of this banter stems from a well-orchestrated PR ploy to promote their companies, but heck, it's still pretty funny. 

In another 'ad', Jackman looks at the camera and says, "Me and Ryan recently called a truce on our social media war and we promised to make ads for each other."

Reynolds then chimes in: "Yeah, we sure did. I've been working 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, so I'm going to go first. Let's roll it."

A pathos-driven advert then follows, praising Jackman for his philanthropy and pointing out that sales of his coffee go to charitable causes.

But Jackman isn't buying it. "I'm not quite ready to show mine yet, let's just cut it there. It's not quite finished. Colour correcting and all that."

However, the Canadian actor insists and Jackman plays his advert. It starts by him sitting in a library with a bottle of Aviation Gin 

However, Jackman then says: "Ryan Reynolds is a total f***ing a***hole."

After a pause, he adds: "The gin is pretty great though... I'll have to try it some day."

A shocked Reynolds looks at Jackman, words not as forthcoming as usual. "Sorry man, I didn't think the truce was actually real," Jackman says. 

The battle continues.
