Maria Carey has duetted with Ryan Reynolds on TikTok and his attention-grabbing version of her hit track, Fantasy, saw him get the famous MC side-eye in the hilarious clip.
For those who haven’t seen the Deadpool star’s new film, Free Guy, the iconic singer’s 1995 chart-topper plays a huge part in the film.
After the Canadian actor, 44, posted a clip of himself passionately lip-syncing along to the song, Mariah shared her own playful response to his attempts.
‘Go see Free Guy this weekend so I can stop doing this,’ Ryan captioned his video, which saw him sitting still as the song began before busting out dance moves and lip-syncing at the start of the chorus.
In Mariah’s duet video, the legendary singer was fully committing to the song for the whole video, before jokingly offering some major side-eye to the Just Friends actor when he began to dance.
‘#duet with vancityreynolds That wasn’t part of the plan!’ the We Belong Together singer wrote in the caption of her post, which included the #FreeGuy and #Fantasy hashtags.

The song is featured during a sequence where Ryan’s character Guy comes across Jodie Comer’s Millie and drifts into a daydream about her.
Last week saw the actor tweet out the clip from the movie as he confirmed that the Killing Ever star was the one singing.
He previously told Variety that he got in touch with Mariah about using the song in the movie.
‘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. She’s just been awesome about it,’ he gushed.
Fantasy was the lead single from Carey’s 1995 album Daydream, debuting at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
It was the music icon’s first single ever to be certified triple platinum, and her ninth single to top the Billboard Hot 100.
