Blink and you may miss the actual footage in the bizarre but on-brand Deadpool 2 trailer. Or you’ll end up with a bunch of blood and paint in your eyes.
Following up with the first film’s viral marketing, which gleefully plastered poop emoji jokes all over Los Angeles billboards, Deadpool 2‘s first trailer comes in the form of a Bob Ross parody. The name doesn’t ring a bell? It’s that sweet middle-aged guy with the alarmingly large head of hair who painted trees while talking in a soothing voice on public access television. It was like the early days of ASMR, but with Deadpool, it’s more like a sensory attack.
