Unless you've been living under a rock, chances are that you've caught at least one of the many trolling incidents that have gone down between Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman. And by the looks of this latest round, Ryan's creativity was at an all-time high.

October 13th may be the day the legendary actor Hugh Jackman was born, but for Free Guy's Ryan Reynolds, it's most likely marked in his calendar as "Troll Day." The hilarious Hollywood actor celebrated the 2021 installment with some merch. Reynold's posted a TikTok captioned, "Socks to be Hugh," as he explained his unique twist on Wolverine's birthday. "Look, I don't tell you how to celebrate Hugh Jackman's birthday. So don't tell me," the father of three shared. The video showed Ryan rocking quite possibly the most bizarre socks we've ever seen.

The Deadpool star was rocking a pair of socks covered in Hugh Jackman's face, hence the punny caption on the video. And if Ryan Reynold knows how to do one thing, it's to make a viral moment. His TikTok climbed to over 17 million views in just one day, with thousands of fans reacting in the comments section. But of course - what would a Reynolds prank be without a response from the victim in question? And for those needing a reminder, this was far from Jackman's first rodeo - the Reminiscence star has been in a trolling feud going back years with his X-Men Origins: Wolverine castmate.

And in typical Hugh Jackman style, he hit back with a response of his own to the birthday shoutout in question. "I know there've been a lot of messages about Ryan's post, him wearing socks with my face on them and wondering where you can get them," the birthday boy shared in his video. "You can't get them anyway because he made them himself." But rather than fire back with a prank of his own, Hugh decided to just take a dig at Ryan instead. "He darned them himself," he continued. "I know, it's just... really sad."
