With Deadpool 2 dropping next week, the chain of convenience stores 7-Eleven are partnering with the film for limited time promotions that started on Monday, May 7th. The promotions will include Deadpool-themed treats, movie tickets and even an augmented reality in-store experience.

Fans will be able to pick up limited edition “perfect for liquids” Slurpee cups that they can use to fill up with the special Mutant Red Dawn flavor slurpee. You can chug those down with four stripper-like Deadpool straws. There will be five variant cups that will be introduced weekly.

Along with that it wouldn’t be a Deadpool promotion without specially marked chimichangas. Also Trolli Sour Brite Tiny Hands candy, Monster Mutant bottled energy drinks, Miks’s Harder Watermelon Lemonade and even a 7-Eleven retailer exclusive Deadpool Funko POP! figure.

Through their app 7-Eleven will be offering fans a chance to “Meet Deadpool” through their augmented reality experience that will bring him to life in 7-Eleven stores. Deadpool will engage with customers that will bring new activities and the opportunity to win prizes each week.

Here is a statement from 7-Eleven senior vice president and chief customer office Sean Thompson via comicbook.com:

“We are bringing an unprecedented level of excitement to 7-Eleven this summer. Our customers love Deadpool, and our collaboration includes exclusive products and an amazing in-store augmented reality experience that is among the first of its kind at any retailer.”

“Deadpool fans can come to our stores and find fun collectibles and different augmented reality experiences unlocked each week through our app,” he added. “We hope people will play along with us – virtually and in real life – and share their experiences with friends and family on social media.”

“To make this even more exciting, 7-Eleven is launching an Augmented Reality (AR) gaming experience, first of its kind in retail, with Deadpool,” said Gurmeet Singh, Chief Digital and Chief Information Officer. “Fans can interact with Deadpool and have fun experiences in the 7-Eleven app, unlocking different experiences each week exclusively in the stores nationwide and in Canada. The fans will also be able to share their interactions with Deadpool inside a 7-Eleven store with family and friends. We think Deadpool fans will love seeing him come to life in our stores.”
