A really cool piece of marketing for Deadpool 2 has sprung up. The Merc with the Mouth was featured on the cover of a new issue of Good Housekeeping. Yes, you read that correctly. While this is pretty odd, nothing is out of Deadpool’s reach, he really can fit in most anywhere. The Editor in Chief of Good Housekeeping, Jane Francisco, had this to say on the matter.
“Deadpool’s persistence to be in Good Housekeeping was impressive – initially we had no idea who he was, let alone that he was a fan of the magazine, but after repeated attempts to ignore his… passion… we came to a compromise. He could appear in one issue, if he promised to stop leaving care packages at our editors’ homes and agreed to maintain a 50-foot distance from the Good Housekeeping offices and our staff.”
Deadpool himself responded with:
“After years of weekly emails and countless carrier pigeons, Good Housekeeping finally returned my calls. And while it’s a dream come true, apparently we have vastly different opinions on the definition of a ‘holiday spread’…”
The issue (which is sadly not available on newsstands) includes some holiday recipes inspired by Deadpool, that are actual recipes, I may have to try one of them. I think this is awesome and a brilliant bit of marketing for the movie. It really reiterates the softer and fun-loving side of the character. I would have no problem believing that Deadpool could deliver on a delicious holiday meal.
