Ryan Reynolds wears 'sweater and fellow Canadian' Seth Rogen in sarcastic charity video

Rogen stars as the same sweater Reynolds wore when he was infamously pranked by Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Ryan Reynolds partners with fellow Vancouver celebrity Seth Rogen in a sarcastic holiday campaign for a good cause.

Two Vancouver celebrities have teamed up for a festive cause. 

Ryan Reynolds debuted this year's holiday campaign to help raise money for The Hospital for Sick Children's SickKids Foundation wearing a talking ugly sweater. 

The sweater, which is the same one Reynolds wore when he was infamously pranked by Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal at a one-person ugly Christmas sweater party, is voiced by fellow Vancouverite Seth Rogen. 

"As a sweater and fellow Canadian," starts Rogen, taking over the spotlight, "I've grown a little tired of Ryan's self-deprecating, deadpan jokes."

The campaign also featured Toronto Maple Leafs hockey player Auston Matthews, but only for a split second before Rogen cut the special message short. "No thank you, Auston! Instead, revel in the wonder of a talking sweater," he says. 

This is the fourth year in a row that the Vancouverite actor has been raising money for the hospital.
