How well do you know Hugh Jackman?

Ryan Reynolds wants to know.

The Deadpool actor — also known as the semi-professional Twitter troll — has launched a faux ad campaign, targeting none other than the Aussie thespian.

Ryan posted a video on the social media platform with the caption, “How well do you really know @RealHughJackman?”

The “ad” features clips from Hugh in his new film The Frontrunner where he plays a former senator, Gary Hart, D-Colo., who became the Democratic frontrunner in the 1988 presidential election.

With the performance likely to enter the actor into the Oscar race, Ryan decided to narrate the video by saying, “Hugh Jackman’s upcoming performance in The Frontrunner has fooled some people into thinking he deserves an award, but before voting begins some people should consider these facts. Hugh Jackman isn’t his real name, it’s Hugh Michael Jackman. Hugh Michael speaks with a charming accent but he’s actually from Milwaukee. He then walked off the job on Wolverine, adding to unemployment. Is this the type of amazing and nice person we want delivering a preachy liberal speech this award season?

The final shot is of Ryan, with the line “Or maybe there’s a real foreigner from a bordering country who would really love it a lot.”

We’re rooting for you, Hugh!
