Who Is the Secret Cameo in DEADPOOL 2?

Who Is the Secret Cameo in DEADPOOL 2?



  1. Nick T says:

    I couldn’t tell if the guys were specifically referencing that SNL clip, but Dave Matthews was awesome in it. I remembered the mellow parts, but not Ozzy. Thanks for posting the link, Matthew!

    @Chuck W., the friend Chris mentioned is Xeni Jardin (@xeni). She was awesome on the Nerdist podcast, way back in Episode #76.

    Lastly, the fat Axl jokes had me laughing out loud in the darkroom at work. Mr. Coldstone. Priceless.

  2. Dave Matthews was actually on an episode of SNL and it was fucking hilarious, he played Ozzy Ozbourne. In the same skit Andy Samberg was Jack Johnson, Joseph Gordon-levitt as Jason Mraz, and Bill Hader as Dave Matthews. Also, the sketch is called the Mellow Show.

    You guys get a baker’s dozen cookies for going through the entire Paradise gag without mentioning Styx. Post-Baby Boomers around the world salute you!

  4. Fizzball says:

    All that Paradise riffing and no “I’ve Never Been To Me”?

  5. Justin says:

    There should be a musical version of “Jumping the Shark”. It would be “Dumping the Poo”, and it would be named after Dave Matthews Band.

    I used to be a bigger DMB Fan. I’ve never been to a show, because I never have two nickels to rub together. I used to buy their albums. But they’ve been pretty unbearable lately.

  6. Chuck W. says:

    I am sorry to hear about your friend. I was hoping to find her twitter in the write up, because you said it WAY too fast.

    Just to let you know I was diagnosed with tongue cancer way back in ought eight. And while I went through chemo and radiation I had you and everyone else on AOTS to give me a laugh, even when I was feeling really shitty. I had to have surgery the following year, as the treatment did not take. But instead of the horrific surgery that UCLA want to perform, I got some cool laser surgery. I took the old addage get another opinion to heart.

    Again sir I thank you. And I would like to wish your friend a speedy recovery.

    Don’t even bother taking that trip to paradise. I went back in April for a wedding and they’ve paved over the whole place. And for what, you may be asking. Not a lazer tag center or a Shakey’s pizza. No. A goddamn parking lot! Uncool, Criterion Games.

  8. Tobor the Great says:

    Matt’s cutie mark is the Starfleet insignia.

  9. Laser Liz says:

    WHAT. YOU ARE IN CONTACT WITH MOHAWK GUY. I really want to hear him on Nerdist. Please make this happen.

    Also, loved this ep 😀

  10. Patty Marvel says:

    @ZZax – SNERT! You win the internet today, good sir of madam.

  11. Michelle says:

    Sorry to hear about your friends and the breast cancer.
    I just hit my 5 year anniversary recently. Breast cancer is one of the most treatable and survivable cancers these days. Chemo can be challenging. My boyfriend (now husband) helped me through mine.
    I wish your friends good luck and good prognosis (es, ies?) You are a good friend to be there for your friend Jenny.

    I made this quick meme based on Jonah’s GNR bit
