Deadpool: DVD, Blu-ray promo spoofs Viagra commercial

Posted on

Even as Deadpool prepares for its home release, the Merc with the Mouth is still using his marketing abilities for good. Ahead of the film’s DVD and Blu-ray debut on May 10, Ryan Reynolds revealed a new promo with the eponymous hero as he spoofs Viagra commercials. 

Deadpool on Blu-ray helps you be ready anytime,” the hero says as he suggestively peels a banana with his best gal (who’s not Morena Baccarin’s Vanessa). “Ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for Deadpool on Blu-ray. If you experience joint pain, easy bruising, vomiting, or clay-colored stool, stop watching Deadpool immediately.”

On the other hand, “if you experience hair loss, skin sores, and irritability, you may actually be Deadpool. And if you experience an erection lasting longer than four hours, you’re welcome.”

Watch the Blu-ray promo below. 

Directed by Tim Miller, the R-rated superhero film quickly rose to prominence, thanks to enthusiastic fans and a stellar box office performance. Fox confirmed development on a sequel with the original creative team and, of course, Reynolds.
