Ryan Reynolds goes after Hugh Jackman in mock political ad

In the spirit of The Front Runner, in which Jackman plays 1988 presidential campaign frontrunner Gary Hart as he's swept up in a scandal, Reynolds made a decision to post a fake hit ad against his longtime X-Men buddy to dissuade "some people" from giving him awards this Golden Globes and Oscars season.

This isn't the first time that the two have taken their bromance public.

In the video, Reynolds tells the audience that instead of considering voting for Jackman for any upcoming awards, following his performance as Senator Gary Hart in the movie, they should instead consider his "facts".

It's actually "Hugh Michael Jackman", the video says, as a birth document highlighting the actor's middle name appears on the screen.

"I'm not Ryan Reynolds and I approve this message", the video continues.

He also said the injured have been treated in the camp clinic, with serious cases evacuated to hospitals in Maiduguri. The NEMA boss said an assessment team was onsite to provide relief assistance to those affected by the attacks.

He also makes at the piss out of Jackman hanging up his claws as Wolverine, saying that his pal "walked off the job. adding to unemployment".

"Think before you vote, but definitely see The Frontrunner", Reynolds signs off. In the clip, Jackman is seen cleaning up dog droppings from atop a photo of Reynolds.

Hugh Jackman once again appears to be the focus of fellow actor Ryan Reynolds' off-kilter sense of humor, with the "Deadpool" star releasing a mock political ad about "The Greatest Showman".

The faux attack ad then argued "The Wolverine" actor would deliver a "preachy liberal speech" at an awards ceremony, before suggesting another actor "from a bordering country" would be better suited for the honor ― Reynolds, of course.
