Ryan Reynolds Filmed a Hilarious Birthday Message for Zayn Malik & We'd Expect Nothing Less

If there were some kind of award for "best birthday shout-out creator" Ryan Reynolds would take it home, hands down. Exhibit A (in case you somehow forgot): his hilarious Instagram post in honor of his wife Blake Lively on her birthday, which was actually just a blurry photo of him and half of her face. Exhibit B: the LOL-worthy way he wished Zayn Malik a happy 25th over the weekend.

In a video Reynolds sent to the former One Direction member (which Zayn subsequently posted to his Instagram for all of us to see — bless), Deadpool, a.k.a. Ryan, filmed himself offering a birthday shout-out to Malik — except midway through, things take a hilariously creepy turn.


A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on

"Zayn, it's Wade. Don't hang up," Deadpool/Wade/Ryan begins the video. "I just want to wish you a very happy birthday — again. I also want to apologize for jumping out of the cake like that. I didn't realize it was the middle of the night and I had no idea I was in the middle of your bedroom. I want to thank your security who were very, very gentle and creative with the taser."

Of course, we're guessing that Ryan came up with the story just to crack us all up — or at least we hope so for his sake, since getting tased doesn't exactly sound like anyone's idea of a good time. Considering this all came from the same guy who hilariously trolled his own daughter with a terrifying Santa Claus story and just couldn't stop himself from making a hilarious post about the ~look~ Blake Lively was sporting during filming for her upcoming movie The Rhythm Section, would we expect anything less? Absolutely not.

Ryan, if you're reading this, my birthday is April 24th...just you know, in case you want to get a head start on planning my birthday shout-out.
