Ryan Reynolds Attempts to Build an IKEA Baby Crib, Hilariously Fails: Video

Ryan Reynolds attempted to build an IKEA baby crib, and he hilariously failed in a new video for GQ -- watch it here! 

Ryan Reynolds is just like Us! For GQ's October 2015 cover story, the Deadpool actor and dad to 9-month-old baby James shot a video, in which he attempted to build the Hensvik crib from IKEA… and miserably failed.

The clip begins with the new dad, 38, unloading the contents from the box. "Easy," he proudly notes. Moments later, Reynolds is on the phone with IKEA expressing some confusion about the pieces and parts.

"This didn't come assembled," he says, as B-roll shows Blake Lively's hunky husband rummaging through the unreasonable pile of screws and paperwork. "Just an enormous amount of hardware that's come with this unit, and I've gotta be honest with you: I'm having a real hard time putting this thing together."

After Reynolds manages to assemble the crib's headboard and sides — which later fall apart — he's seen opening a bottle of wine in frustration. "What's Swedish for 'F— you'?" he says. "Besides a slow descent into alcoholism, I'm just really having trouble finding all the screws."

He then discovers a foolproof method for assembling the crib.

Reynolds' clearly lackluster building skills weren't the actor's only revelation from his most recent time with GQ. The actor also opened up about a dark time involving one of his lifelong pals.

"A guy that I’d known for my whole life, one of my closest friends growing up, he had been shopping pictures of my baby around," Reynolds revealed to the mag. "Somebody I grew up with, yeah. Somebody I’ve known, who’s been one of my closest friends, for 25 years… It was like a death. It was like one of those devastating things to find out."

Watch him try to put the crib together above.
