On Sunday, the “Deadpool” actor recalled his time on the PBS children’s program after a parent tweeted about watching him “doing an A-Team gag” on the show. The parent included a screenshot of Reynolds’ big, blue letter “A” costume, which had a cutout for the actor’s face.
Reynolds responded with just the right amount of cheekiness.
“I remember how challenging it was to sing because the A-hole was so tight,” he replied on Twitter. “But I pushed through because kids all over the country were counting on me.”

Zach Braff tweeted back at Reynolds, writing, “You had me at A-hole was so tight.”
CNN’s Jake Tapper simply responded with, “Ryan.”
Other Twitter users also loved Reynolds’ response and had some jokes of their own:
been bursting into spontaneous giggles thinking about how @vancityReynolds probably went up to every cast & crew on that set asking, “am I the A-hole?”

Jokes aside, Reynolds’ appearance itself was squeaky clean.
