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. Now, we wouldn't say the song comes anywhere near to Celine's other musical masterpiece for the best movie of all time, Titanic, ( don't @ me) but let's be real, she is never going to top "My Heart Will Go On." So, her new song "Ashes" is a good compromise and honestly we are here for anything involving Ryan Reynolds — in or out of his superhero uniform. All that was missing was a cameo by his wife, Blake Lively, or Ryan's Twitter nemesis Hugh Jackman.
It's also hilarious, which Dion appreciates:
Over the years I've received incredible songs and I’ve been involved in fun projects.Ashes is 1 of those songs and @deadpoolmovie is off-the-charts!Take the most insane ride of your life when it opens on 5/18!You’ll be laughing your “ashes” off!–Céline xx https://t.co/oQdifucwUP— Celine Dion (@celinedion) May 3, 2018
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.
