Ryan Reynolds isn’t the only one with a penchant for humorous advertisements as his frenemy Hugh Jackman is definitely no slouch in that department. The X-MEN actor happens to be the Global Boot Ambassador for R.M. Williams, an Australian company known for their “beautiful and purposefully designed footwear” that is “built using 80 hand-crafted processes to deliver superior comfort.” A new commercial for R.M. Williams has been released which shows that Jackman loves his R.M. Williams boots so much that he doesn’t feel the need to wear anything else. You can check out more of Hugh Jackman than you’ve likely seen before above.
To be clear, R.M.Williams encourages all people – including Hugh Jackman – to wear clothes. Clothes have many amazing benefits from making the wearer look stylish to making meetings way less awkward. As soon as this meeting in question ended, we immediately contacted Hugh’s counsel to make sure they explain our ‘only R.M.Williams boots’ contractual stipulation did not apply to other vestments. We are happy to report that Hugh seems to have gone back to wearing clothes, in addition with his R.M.Williams boots. We would also like to note that this meeting took place in early February. Hugh and R.M.Williams now encourage those appearing in public to wear masks as well.
The R.M. Williams commercial was created in collaboration with Hugh Jackman and the folks at Maximum Effort, with R.M.Williams Chief Marketing Officer Mat Hayward saying, “2020 has been an uncomfortable year and we’re hopeful that in addition to highlighting the comfort and spirit of R.M.Williams boots, our latest brand effort will bring a uniquely Hugh Jackman bit of laughter and joy.” Of course, Ryan Reynolds couldn’t let the ad slide without his own comment, as he took to Twitter to say, “Is that the chair from my office?“
Hugh Jackman will next be seen starring alongside Rebecca Ferguson in REMINISCENCE, a sci-fi thriller written and directed by Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy. Jackman will play Nick Bannister, a private-eye who deals in “recapturing vivid cherished memories for clients,” while Ferguson plays Mae, one of his clients whose seemingly simple request sets Nick off on a quest to reveal this woman’s past. The film is slated to be released on April 16, 2021.
