Here’s a riddle for you: what do you get when you combine the “Merc with a Mouth” and a refreshing summer time dip?
“Dead..pool. You get it?”
Huh? Get it? Yeah you probably get it. It’s not that hard.
In this newest promo—that we first saw at Comic Book Resources—advertising the release of the Deadpool DVD and Blu-ray (out today, Tuesday May 10th), the R-rated superhero gets an Adult Swim, puppet-style commercial, featuring not only our favorite raunchy superhero in red, but also a puppet Stan Lee as the poolside DJ.
“We didn’t have to pay the DJ anything, just had to stock the pond—so to speak.”
Besides bikini-clad puppets, this super silly commercial also gave puppet Stan Lee literally (literally) what he wanted when he said, “We need someone to die up in this pool. Make it a dead pool.” In fairness, that guy Deadpool needlessly murdered with a bunch of discs in the chest did seem like kind of a tool. Who needs that when you’re trying to cool off?
Like the movie itself, as well as all of the commercials that preceded its release in theaters, the ads for this Blu-ray release have been lots of fun, like the one that was a parody of every single erectile dysfunction commercial you have ever seen.
I mean, that’s if you even have a Blu-ray player. I have an old VCR that only plays Betamax tapes without sound.[brightcove video_id=”4747209859001″ brightcove_account_id=”3653334524001″ brightcove_player_id=”2bfa565b-5412-4cfd-9211-6269880b8a5e”]
