One could do worse than get Deadpool as a spokesperson, and that “one” I’m talking about in this case is Devour. It seems like the frozen meal company has thrown wads of cash at the Merc with the Mouth, and as such, he’s taken it upon himself to preach the gospel of Devour.
The 30-second commercial is textbook Deadpool, with him addressing the audience from the very beginning, telling us that we’re in his dreams (hence the unicorns and talking food). A girl pops up and asks if he’s selling out. He answers in the affirmative before giving her the keys to her unicorn and riding off on his shopping cart. It’s all very dumb and very Deadpool, which is a good thing.
While I was amused, I’m sure there plenty of fans out there who will roll their eyes at this. Sure Deadpool is the perfect hero to have as a rep for their commercials, but he’s so predictably fourth-wall-breaking that I can see many saying, “Yes, we get it, you’re tongue-in-cheek.” But what do you think? Is this commercial pushing things too far? Let us know your thoughts down below!
Below is the official synopsis for Deadpool 2:
“After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover. “
Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18, 2018.
