The tables have turned on internet troll king Ryan Reynolds when he got a taste of his own medicine being punk'd by buddies Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal.

They got him real good by inviting him to an ugly Christmas sweater party that was not an ugly Christmas sweater party.


The 42-year-old Deadpool star posted a picture of himself in a rarely-seen state of defeat.

Flanked by the cheerful faces of Jackman, 50, and Gyllenhaal, 38, Reynolds is looking doleful in a tacky red and green Christmas sweater. But this isn't just any tacky sweater.

A three-dimensional gold ribbon is the icing on the cake on the clueless participant of a non-existent theme.

And the winners are Jackman and Gyllenhaal.

Reynolds wrote on Instagram:
"These f-----g assholes said it was a sweater party."


It was refreshing to see Reynolds—who is usually the mischievous one ribbing his comrades on social media—being duped in such an epic way. There is no release date set for the confirmed Deadpool 3 film, but the first two installments are now out in a double feature Blu-ray and 4K version available here.

Fans laughed along with the successful prank in which Reynolds was the unexpected patsy.




Jackman and Gyllenhaal are giving high-fives for pulling off the gag.

Let the memes begin!

Gyllenhaal is slated to join Jackman and Reynolds in the Marvel comics family when he takes on the role of Marvel's Mysterio.




Riffing off of Deadpool's contentious relationship with Wolverine from the Marvel comics, Reynolds routinely trolls Jackman on social media.

Jackman's character Logan referenced the Merc with a Mouth in two of his standalone films since the pair appeared in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine together. That 2009 film—now available here as a Blu-ray double feature with the second Wolverine film—marked the first time Reynold's played the character Deadpool.

But Jackman made nice on one occasion for Reynolds's birthday.


Reynolds quickly fired back, "This man is a monster. He's not even from Australia. He's from Milwaukee," referencing Wolverine's shirtless doppleganger—the famed "Milverine."


Reynolds even extends his trolling to wife and Gossip Girl actress, Blake Lively.

Now with Jake Gyllenhaal getting in with the holiday high-jinks, something tells me the brohaha is just getting started.

Get ready folks, because 2019 could start off with a bang.

The advice "fake it til you make it," though often said with at least a hint of sarcasm, does carry quite a bit of wisdom.

I'm going to be perfectly honest––I'm a city boy. I'm not a huge fan of hiking or camping. I happen to be a huge fan of running water. Have you heard of it? It's great. Highly recommended.

I've also, on a more humorous note, watched far too many horror films over the years and don't particularly like idea of running off into the woods only to piss off some demon that was perfectly fine until I arrived. I also have immense respect for our friendly neighborhood serial killers and demonstrate this regularly by staying out of their territory.

Those who love the great outdoors had plenty to share after Redditor Your_Normal_Loser asked the online community, "

Hikers of Reddit, what is the weirdest or creepiest thing you've come across while hiking?"

Time is of the essence. And time is not definable. Those are lessons we learn as we get older; as times passes and fluctuates in front of us.

Time is always fleeting yet always catches up to us. I find myself shocked when I wake up on certain days and realize I'm a particular age of my parent that sticks out for me.

Like, how did that happen? I guess I should just be thankful I'm still here to witness it all.

Redditor u/TW1103 wanted to discuss the meaning... of time and all of its affects by asking:

What fact really puts the scale of time into an insane perspective?
