Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds has something to admit: He is the "Bruce" who forgot to include the winning team in an Ottawa Public Health tweet about the Super Bowl.

"There's been a lot said lately about our dear social media intern, Bruce. And now, Bruce would like to say a few words," the caption from Friday's tweet from the local public health reads, introducing a video from their "social media intern."

The star from Deadpool and "that episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch" revealed he occasionally tweets from Ottawa Public Health because "everybody does."

"Look about the Super Bowl, in my defence these days I'm just, I'm so busy OK? So just back off," Reynolds says in his video message.

The tweet he is referring to reads "Bruce, make sure to put the winning team's name here" and the image said "insert winning team logo here" when it was posted on Feb. 7. The public health unit then used the tweet as a starting point to post a thread about spotting misinformation.

The video ends with several pop-up text reminders for everyone to wash their hands, wear a mask, stay home, get tested and get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Canadians were quick to respond to the video post by Ottawa Public Health.
