I'm definitely not the first to say that the marketing for Deadpool has been nothing short of amazing. From the viral video of Deadpool trick or treating with children to the infamous romantic comedy billboard, it's been one fun build up to one of the most successful superhero films of all time.
Poking fun of superhero films isn't all that unique, though. The first images of Ben Affleck's Batman beside the Batmobile led to hundreds of memes. Jared Leto's Hot Topic take on the Joker also prompted some funny internet material, but I'm still convinced that Deadpool has taken up the most attention. That's why I had to get in on the action.
After seeing Deadpool for the first time, I caught myself in a Ryan Reynolds mood. I own several of his films, but Just Friends was the one that I hadn't revisited in the longest time. Not only is his performance in the film enough evidence that he was born to be in that red leather suit, there was a particular scene in the film where I could actually imagine Deadpool being present.
Below is the video I made that originally seemed too good to be true. I wasn't exactly sure how it was going to come together, but it ended up meshing perfectly in the editing room. Obviously this is a gag, but I believe it fits perfectly with everything else that has been released. I'd love to hear what you think about the video, whether it's here in the comments or on the YouTube comment section itself.
