Deadpool is known for its off-the-wall marketing, but their most recent promotion definitely takes the cake.
In the new teaser trailer, we see Deadpool spoofing Bob Ross and his PBS painting lessons. He’s painting with colors like Clockwork Orange, Box Office Gold, and Betty White to name a few. While he’s painting, he’s “high as a kite”. Near the end of the trailer, he finds one of his paintings completely messed up, at which point we standby due to technical difficulties. And then we see about ten seconds of glorious new footage. Deadpool 2 will feature more action, more profanity, and more fun than the first. And of course, a bigger baddie. The final painting really speaks for itself.
But if you’re confused by the trailer, you may be even more confused by the description. Here’s 20th Century Fox’s description of Deadpool 2:
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Come to think of it…Reynolds probably wrote that.
