Ryan Reynolds Enlists Seth Rogen as an Ugly Talking Christmas Sweater for SickKids Fundraiser

Ryan Reynolds has returned for another holiday season of helping The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) as they launch their annual fundraising campaign.

This time around, the Deadpool star has enlisted Canadian countryman Seth Rogen to help spread the message, naturally, with some laughs.

In this year's fundraising spot, Reynolds' ugly sweater comes to life (Rogen) to stop him from making any jokes and to just move the important message along. Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews also has a quick cameo in the message.
