Vancouver's Ryan Reynolds recently showed off his husky baritone vocals in a viral TikTok trend singing along to Mika’s 2007 hit "Grace Kelly," but he had help with the high parts.
The video, posted to the Deadpool star’s TikTok account on Monday (Sept. 13), starts with Reynolds layering three of his own harmonies on top of one another. Just as Reynolds is about to launch into the fourth and notably higher part, actor Will Farrell enters stage left with a hilarious falsetto which he keeps going into the highest harmony. Reynolds, eventually accepting he is now sharing his spotlight, heads into the melody with Ferrell singing an octave above.
Late to the Grace Kelly trend but way early for our movie musical. I ❤️ duets. (And Mika)♬ original sound - Ryan Reynolds
Perhaps it's due to the sheer star power on screen, or the hilarity of the harmonies (likely a mix of both) that the video is on pace to be Reynolds’ most viewed on his TikTok account, second only to his first-ever video posted.
“Late to the Grace Kelly trend but way early for our movie musical. I ❤️ duets. (And Mika),” Reynolds wrote of the video, in reference to the project he and Farrell are currently working on, Spirited.
Spirited is a modern retelling of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Distributed by Apple TV+ the Christmas-themed musical film stars Reynolds and Ferrell along with Octavia Spencer. Reynolds has been confirmed as the lead and Ferrell will be playing the role of the Ghost of Christmas Present, hence the old-style get-up seen in the video.
