Ryan Reynolds Reveals The Most Irritating Prank He's Ever Pulled

Ingenious

It's nearly impossible to pull off a genuinely funny prank, and the fact that they're almost exclusively enjoyed by stag do sociopaths doesn't help.

But leave it to Ryan Reynolds to breathe new life into the forgotten art.

In a cover interview for the September issue of Men's Health, the Deadpool actor revealed the greatest prank he's ever pulled.

"A friend of mine left town for a week. When he was gone, I painted his entire office puce," admitted the actor. "A strange colour, because it's kind of like this muddy, ugly sort of red."

"But we didn't just paint his office that colour - we painted everything in his entire office that colour," added Reynolds. They painted "the inside of his desk, every pencil, every pen - everything."

The 40 year-old actor didn't stop there with his tips. He also gave some guidance on creative swearing.

"I love a good compound swear word," Ryan said. "'This party's shitty' isn't nearly as effective as 'This party's a total shit symphony'. That gives it a little jushe."

Can't argue with that.
