From the start of filming, the Deadpool movie's social media campaign has absolutely nailed the batshit crazy spirit that befits a movie about the Merc with a Mouth. From the first image being Deadpool laying on a bearskin rug à la Burt Reynolds to his Mother's Day tweet to the fact that the official account follows exactly one other account and it's Hello Kitty, it's been hilariously bizarre.

But the cast's latest stunt to announce their attendance at San Diego Comic-Con might be the best, most elaborate one yet. In a nod to the Merc's favorite show, The Golden Girls, the cast took turns tweeting the lyrics to the theme song...but of course, Deadpool has to put his own spin on the words at the very end.

It all started with Ryan Reynolds' first tweet:

And the rest of the cast took it from there.

I admit it, I didn't see the last tweet coming and laughed aloud at my desk when I read it. Bonus points for them all Photoshopping their faces over Deadpool's. With all due respect to movies like [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870), [X-Men: Apocalypse](tag:1194267), and [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158), this is the movie panel presentation I'm looking forward to most. Maybe it's because I love Deadpool so much, but I can't help but think Team Deadpool might be the most entertaining of them all.
