One would think that being the highest-grossing X-Men movie of all time, as well as one of the top R-rated movies of all time, Deadpool’s amazing marketing department would receive that well-deserved rest. One would definitely be wrong.
Yesterday, the insane mutate himself, Ryan Reynolds, posted the above video on his Twitter account, celebrating the one-month anniversary of Deadpool’s release. Just like everything else when it comes to the Merc with a Mouth and advertising, its goofiness and originality are hilarious.
The ad runs like the movie itself is about 30 years old, with the footage made all grainy like it was ripped from an old VHS tape. Reynolds is doing a silly voiceover letting us know that multiple viewings of the film are “guaranteed to make your family pregnant.”
We even get an entire second of new footage, with Deadpool and a teen admiring a cat in the tree. Once again, we are treated to something new even though there is absolutely NO need for it. Deadpool worked hard to get to the top, and it looks like he’s going to give it his all to STAY on top.
So what do you think? Which taco joint will you and yours congregate to celebrate this once in a lifetime event? What could the studio possibly have up their sleeve for Deadpool’s Blu-ray release? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
