Could it be that Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds’ years-long “feud” has reached an end?
It’s likely they’ll find something else to hilariously scuffle about, but not before Hugh declares himself victor in quite a big way this time around.
US retailer Sam’s Club held a competition that played on their years-long embattlement, getting their members to vote for a favourite.
A purchase of Jackman's Laughing Man Coffee counted as a vote for him, a purchase of Reynolds’ Aviation Gin for Ryan. Those unable to make a purchase were able to vote online, with Hugh coming up trumps.
It’s all in the name of charity, as each person’s respective initiaves – Reynold’s SickKids Foundation and Jackman’s Laughing Man Foundation – will receive equal donations from the retailer.
Hugh delighted in one-upping his frenemy by winning and getting his adversary to post a video online about it, which fans are finding hilarious.
The skit features Hugh’s win being confirmed by Sam’s Club CEO Kath McLay over a video call, and offering to do the honours in breaking the news of Ryan’s loss personally. He keeps it short and sweet.
‘You lost the Sam’s Club thing, I won. Everyone hates you. Bye!'
Ryan isn’t given any time to process before his competitor abruptly leaves, posting the video it with a hilarious caption.
To which Hugh was happy to highlight.
Though a truce in the name of charity would be a sweet conclusion, it’s hard to believe this is the end of it.
Ryan is never going to leave it at that, surely?
