Personally, I am not the wild fan of Deadpool that the Internet is demanding me to be. My favorite Marvel universe movie is Black Panther followed closely by Logan. But the marketing team for Deadpool keeps coming for my fandom, and they're getting closer and closer. Frankly, they're geniuses.
On Thursday, Celine Dion released a surprise music video and song for the Deadpool soundtrack, and it's truly, truly incredible.
Over the years I've received some incredible songs and I’ve been involved in some amazing projects. 'Ashes' is one of those songs and ‘Deadpool 2’ is off-the-charts! Take the most insane ride of your life when Deadpool 2 opens on May 18 … you’ll be laughing your “ashes” off! - Céline xx… Tout au long de ma carrière, on m’a offert d’incroyables chansons et j'ai eu la chance de participer à des projets extraordinaires. "Ashes" est l'une de ces chansons, et "Deadpool 2" est vraiment hors-norme ! Préparez-vous à vivre des moments époustouflants avec Deadpool 2 qui sort en salles le 18 mai… c’est à mourir de rire ! - Céline xx… To see full video, click the link in bio/Pour voir la vidéo complète, cliquez sur le lien dans la bio. #Deadpool2 @deadpoolmovie 🎤🎶🎬
It's also hilarious, which Dion appreciates:

In the full vid, we get a dramatic and powerful performance by Dion, a dance in high heels by Deadpool, and a few romantic clips from the upcoming film. Yes, beauty can come from the ashes!
Though, I'm sorry to say I don't think that is actually Ryan Reynolds dancing. He is a man of modern talents, but flawless modern dance in heels is probably not one of them.
I mean, look at that booty:
Who cares. This whole thing is great:
Some people think the mash-up actually makes perfect sense?
Though Celine comes out ahead, in most estimations. Including Deadpool's:
The consensus is that it's actually a really good song!
🤣🤣 Only Deadpool could make this beautiful song hilarious. Ryan is the Wade Wilson we've always wanted but never deserved— Lord Duce (@NinjaDuce) May 3, 2018
I love this! Celine looked and sounded so beautiful, lol Deadpool slayed in those heels. 😂— Bradley Thompson (@supertrueblue20) May 3, 2018
Thank you to the Deadpool team, who are truly reaching across the aisles to bring everyone together over this music video:
Whoever is in control of the marketing and everything about this movie (and I suspect it's A LOT Ryan Reynolds himself) deserves a fucking award and a lifetime supply of chimichangas. That is so brilliant, I can't believe it.— Mika En (@MikaEn2305) May 3, 2018
This is beauty, rising from the ash-vertising.
