Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds is letting his ugly sweater do the talking during this year’s holiday campaign for Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children.
And you may recognize the voice of the sweater. It’s Canadian actor, comedian Seth Rogen, both born in Vancouver.
Check out the video.
Rogan says “As a sweater and a fellow Canadian that comes out but once a year I’ve grown a little tired of Ryan’s like self-deprecating, deadpan jokes, instead, revel in the wonder of a talking sweater as you make a donation to SickKids.”
Each time Reynolds tries to say something, the talking bow cuts him off, including when Toronto Maple Leafs player Auston Matthews makes a quick appearance.
Multiple athletes, politicians and entertainers have taken part in the campaign including Maple Leafs forward Austin Matthews, sprinter Andrew De Grasse, and Toronto Mayor John Tory.
SickKids says in the three years since Reynolds’ campaign started, more than 1.7 million has been raised.
