Ryan Reynolds chose a hilarious way to wish his buddy Hugh Jackman well following news that the "Logan" star had contracted COVID-19 for a second time.

The "Deadpool" star posted a video to Instagram on Wednesday, featuring a montage of the pair together along with a sped up version of the song "Angeleyes" by ABBA.

"Sometimes when I'm lonely, I sit and think about him," the lyrics state. "And it hurts to remember all the good times when I thought I could never live without him, and I wonder does it have to be the same? Every time when I see him, will it bring back all the pain?"

In the video text, Reynolds appears to lament the lost opportunity for the two stars to appear in a Deadpool/Wolverine crossover film, which Reynolds had jokingly hinted at previously.

"Feel better," Reynolds captioned the clip.

Jackman, who is currently starring in "The Music Man" on Broadway and was temporarily replaced after his COVID diagnosis by his understudy Max Clayton, has been keeping busy in his downtime.

On Thursday, he posted an Instagram video with an outtake of himself and wife Deborra-Lee Furness, dressed to the nines for the Met Gala back on May 2. Unlike his sharp tux and tails, Jackman's delivery in the video is anything but smooth as he flubs his line to the camera and blows a raspberry.

"Things to do when you have covid. Again," Jackman captioned the clip. "Clean out your iPhone photos and videos."

The two-time Tony winner will return to "The Music Man" at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre on Wednesday, June 22.
