It pains me to say it, but we no longer live in the days where headlining songs get a lot of traction. It’s been a solid 20 years since Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” came out, and frankly, I don’t think we’ll ever really get another song from her for another big Hollywood film. Ever.

Oh, wait. This just in. It sounds like I was dead wrong, and that Celine Dion has just released a brand-new song and video — this time for the most likely of movies, Deadpool 2. Of course, as you’d expect from the marketing, they play this one pretty straight, with Dion giving a performance you’d expect, and the video undercutting with scenes from the film, almost making it look like a dramatic one.

The other (high-heeled) shoe finally drops when Deadpool comes out in high heels, doing an odd interpretive dance while the song plays — but even that is played relatively straight. It’s only at the very end, when Deadpool tells Celine Dion that she needs to dial it down to a five that they hit the joke home.

I have to say, this is yet another example of why Deadpool 2 — along with its marketing team — has become one of the kings of hyping up their own film. The nature of the character lends itself to the ridiculous antics, and I they’ve managed to surprise me at virtually every turn. What do you think of this latest music video? Let us know your thoughts down below!
