It makes total sense that onetime "Sexiest Man Alive," actor and Twitter funny man Ryan Reynolds was named 'Man of the Year' by Hasty Pudding Theatricals at Harvard University. The father of two and husband to Blake Lively has proven himself to be way more than just eye candy through his diverse body of work, public adoration for his family and his great sense of humor. And he put said sense of humor to use this week, when, after receiving the award he performed a celebratory lap dance for one of the show's cast members.

Kyle Whelihan (performing under the name Blake Deadly, in ironic homage) stayed in character as he was straddled by Reynolds, who performed a series of moves that could have scored him a role in Magic Mike XXL. The night went on with various hilarious skits all starring Reynolds, and which included such hijinx as giving a piggy-back rides to cast members and getting kissed on the cheek by people in wild costumes.

He did pause the laughs to thank Harvard for his award and to discuss his accomplishments this year which of course included his daughters two-year-old James and four-month-old Ines, (awww) thus securing him a spot as 'Dad of the Year' in our hearts.
