Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds is continuing a playful feud with Hugh Jackman as he’s receiving plenty of awards season buzz. But Reynolds is hoping he doesn’t walk away with any hardware.

On Friday, Reyolds went after Jackman with a creative spin, posting a fake political ad attacking the Australian.

“How well do you really know @RealHughJackman?” Reynolds captioned the video on Twitter.

“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,” the video, clearly narrated by Reynolds, begins.

The video then dives into a list of untrue 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 at Wolverine, adding to unemployment,” Reynolds says, as a note at the bottom of the screen reads, “This is in no way true.”

“Is this the type of amazing actor and nice person we want delivering a preachy liberal speech this awards season? Or maybe there’s a real foreigner from a bordering country who would really love it a lot,” as Reynolds, who’s Candian, walks across the screen.

Jackson then shot back.

In a nine second long video, the actor cleans up after his dog went to the bathroom. The video then shows that his dog did its business on a photo of Reynolds dressed as Deadpool.

“HIGH ROAD. @VancityReynolds,” he captioned the clip.
