Jessica Mauboy has brilliantly hit back at Ryan Reynolds' swipe at Australia.

Here’s a little story that involves a sardonic superhero, Jessica Mauboy, a whole lot of glitter, a saltwater crocodile, and a sleeping moose.

You see, last week in the lead-up to the Eurovision grand final, Deadpool AKA Ryan Reynolds, took a lil’ dig at Australia.

The 41-year-old shared a tongue-in-cheek video on Twitter, featuring himself dressed as his Marvel character Deadpool, in a bid to get Canada, his homeland, into Eurovision.

“Don’t give me that crap about Canada not being part of the European family. You let in Australia and they’re barely on the planet,” he said in the video.

“Our generous gift of Celine Dion alone should earn us an invite.”

Yes, well. We can’t argue with that.

Anyhoo, now Jessica Mauboy has issued a cheeky lil’ comeback to Reynolds on Twitter.


“G’day Ryan. I’m Jessica Mauboy and I’m representing Australia at this year’s Eurovision,” the 28-year-old says in the video.

She then filmed herself moving a cut-out of Australia across the map, right next to Europe.

“You were wondering why Australia is here. Well if you look at the map that I just made, we’re just right over here.”

"And will your sleeping moose really want to take on an Australian saltwater crocodile?," she asked the Deadpool star, before ending her video on the topic we can all agree on... Celine Dion.

"Well, thanks Ryan. And if you could actually really put me in touch with Celine Dion, that would be great."
