On Friday, an impressively shirtless Wahlberg, 50, showed off the proper use of the Power Plate Pulse massage gun in an Instagram video. "Mr. Tom Holland, you see this?" Wahlberg barked in the video set in a gym. "This is a massage tool for muscle recovery, nothing else."
During a joint Access Hollywood interview between the stars last week, Holland, 25, stepped in it when discussing Wahlberg gifting him a fitness massage gun when the "Uncharted" co-stars had initially met.
Holland mistook the massage gun for a "type of self-pleasure" device.
"Mark Wahlberg was kind enough to give me a massage gun after I left his house in L.A. and he drove me back to my hotel," said Holland. "At the time, I was confused as to what kind of massage gun this was, having never seen one before, and I thought it was the type of self-pleasure."
Things got more awkward when Wahlberg then said he'd drive Holland home from their meeting "so (Holland) wouldn't have to take an Uber."
Wahlberg, an investor and brand ambassador for Power Plate Pulse explained to USA TODAY last week about the now-humorous misunderstanding.
"We were talking about fitness and I was emphasizing recovery and (Holland) was like, 'Between working out and playing golf, I'm always super sore and tight.' And I said, 'Here is this great tool.' " Wahlberg said. "He'd never seen one before. If you've ever been to a gym in the U.K., they're a little bit behind. So (Holland) hadn't seen anything like it and I don't know why his mind would go there."
"And then I offered him a ride and he just got super uncomfortable," says Wahlberg.
The two quickly cleared up the discussion about massage guns, Wahlberg adds: "That was his way of thinking, certainly not mine."

In the Instagram video, Wahlberg gave a final shot to Holland before getting a shoulder massage from the gun: "Keep it clean!"
The two stars keep the banter going, and keep it relatively clean when "Uncharted" hits theaters Feb. 18.
