Ryan Reynolds has stepped up his game when it comes to trolling wife Blake Lively.
The notorious prankster made sure the actress' 34th birthday was a memorable one, so he asked Marah Carey to perform a duet with him on TikTok as a surprise for his wife.
"My favorite thing that's ever happened on August 25th," the actor captioned the video on Twitter. The joke, of course, was in the caption as Lively's birthday is on August 25.
Also not in on the joke was Carey, who playfully side-eyed the Free Guy star as he added his own choreography to the video.
"#Duet with @vancityreynolds," she wrote while sharing the clip to her own Twitter account. "That wasn't part of the plan, @VancityReynolds!!!"
In a follow-up tweet, Carey explained, "This was supposed to be me singing background for Blake!!! Happy birthday gorgeous!!!"

This isn't the first time Reynolds has trolled his wife on her birthday. In 2017, he cropped her face out of his birthday tribute to her and in 2019 he shared unflattering photos of the birthday girl blinking and making funny faces.
But Reynolds' choice to duet with Carey is not as random as it may seem. In a previous interview, the actor has revealed he fangirls over the singer and considers himself a proud member of her "Lambily" — she affectionately calls her family of fans "lambs".

"I am a huge Mariah Carey fan," he told Variety earlier this month. "It really was one of those weird things that happened naturally. I write to music anyway, and I initially put a song in the script by The Outfield called 'Your Love.' It's an old '80s tune. It's great, but it just didn't have that epic scale I was looking for. And then 'Fantasy' just came on my playlist and everything clicked in.
"I got to speak with Mariah and talked to her a little bit about how much of an engine and an agent of progress that this song had been in terms of our creative process and the scripts," he added. "She's just been awesome about it."
