“And we’ll mix that with another little dab of our Betty Hwite.”
Eight months after the hilarious No Good Deed short, Ryan Reynolds has concocted another teaser of Deadpool being Deadpool…and a certain PBS painter. Check it out.
For the kiddies out there, Deadpool is parodying Bob Ross, the beloved host of The Joy of Painting, a PBS show that ran from the late 80’s to early 90’s, known for its incredibly mellow vibes, Ross’ positive attitude, and his uncanny ability to turn a blank canvas into a masterpiece in less than 30 minutes. Although he sadly passed in ’95, Ross has lived on as a staple of Internet culture and inspiration for artists everywhere.
Obviously, Ross never declared his love for cocaine during the show, but it’s outstanding how dead-on the teaser is, from the goofy paint names running across the screen, cadence of voice, and of course, wacking off. In fact, it somehow loops around into becoming a sweet little tribute.
The teaser also ends with a series of quick flashes of footage from Deadpool 2, or its now official title, The Untitled Deadpool Sequel. We see Dopinder, Negasonic Teenage Warhead flip us the bird, Deadpool emerge from a coffin, and a brief hint of Cable at the very end thanks to the mechanical whirling of his cyborg arm.
Hopefully it won’t be too long before we get the first trailer for the Merc with a Mouth’s second outing, but if we keep getting wonderful teasers like this, we’ll be happier than happy little trees.
The Untitled Deadpool Sequel hits theaters on June 1, 2018.
