It’s a trailer! No, it’s an avant-garde satire! No, it’s an extended joke about masturbation! Wait, what?
At last, Deadpool has given us the answer to the age-old question of how you tell fans everything about a new movie without actually telling them anything that happens in the movie. That’s right—this is a completely spoiler-free trailer for Deadpool 2, in which all you’ll do is watch Deadpool painting some happy trees and mighty mountains. Oh, and also? He’ll be “beating off” his paintbrush. Because Deadpool.
This is actually an extended parody of the old Bob Ross TV segments in which the famed hippie dude with a floof of hair taught people to paint “happy trees.” Just in case you think the teaser’s too over-the-top, check out the real Bob Ross in the video below. It’s hard to beat this guy in the stoner goofball department.
The first Deadpool movie was a surprise hit, and it starred Ryan Reynolds as the hideously disfigured, superpowered “merc with a mouth.” Reynolds is a longtime fan of the Marvel comics antihero Deadpool, and the role seems made for him. What’s going to happen in this sequel, coming June 1, 2018? You know, stuff. Guns. Explosions. Snark. Don’t worry about it. Just enjoy the view of those happy trees.
