Tom Holland told Jimmy Kimmel that his plan to go a week without alcohol was derailed by a gift from Ryan Reynolds — a case of "spider-gin."

Holland spoke with Kimmel on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" over video chat, and he told the late-night host that he and his three friends with whom he was quarantining were "drunk all the time."

Holland told Kimmel he had managed to be "a little productive" and had done "some really good work" on the script that he and his friend Harry had been working on.

"I've been playing a lot of PlayStation," Holland added, "and watching a lot of films and catching up on film history, and, like I said, drinking a lot."

"I actually said this weekend that I was going to stop drinking for a week," Holland told Kimmel. "I was going to have a week off, and then literally Monday morning — I've got my own prop — Ryan Reynolds sent me a case of gin."

"Literally, literally I was like this morning I'm not drinking, the whole week I'm not drinking at all, and then literally the doorbell rang and there was a case of gin from lovely Ryan, so I think we'll have to drink that."

Kimmel joked that Reynolds' gift was Deadpool trying to corrupt Spider-Man, while Holland read out the message attached to the box sent from Reynolds: "It says: 'Some friendly neighborhood spider-gin, love Ryan.'"

Holland later donned some Spidey clothing to surprise Kimmel's son, who was celebrating his third birthday, and flawlessly reverted to his Peter Parker American accent.

"Hey, Billy, it's nice to meet you," Holland said as Parker. "My name is Peter Parker, I live in Queens, New York. Where do you live? Do you know?"

Billy grew shy pretty quickly and laughed into his father's shoulder, while Kimmel's daughter Jane said Holland had a cute face. Holland and his friends then joined in a rendition of "Happy Birthday" to Billy.
