New 'Deadpool' Teaser Mimics Erectile Dysfunction Ads
For Deadpool's home video release next week, an ad debuted Thursday that takes its cues from erectile dysfunction commercials.
In the ad, posted by star Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool is hanging out with a lady friend, enjoying their day while a voiceover of the actor talks about possible side effects from watching the comic book character film. The ad has the hashtag #DeadPole.
"If you experience joint pain, easy bruising, vomiting or clay-colored stool, stop watching Deadpool immediately," Reynolds says. "If you experience hair loss, skin sores and irritability, you may actually be Deadpool. And if you experience an erection lasting longer than four hours — you're welcome."
The spot already has more than a million views on Facebook after being up for just an hour.
Deadpool found success at the box office early this year and went on to become one of the top grossing R-rated films of all time. It will be released on Blu-ray and DVD May 10.
