Someone Is Trolling with "Full" 'Detective Pikachu' Movie on YouTube

Star Ryan Reynolds, known for his savvy marketing skills, is aware of the gag, but took no credit for it.

An anonymous YouTube user is having some fun with Pokémon: Detective Pikachu fans.

The "full" Ryan Reynolds' movie was uploaded to the site on Tuesday. The only thing is, the file is actually nearly two hours of just Pikachu dancing around, having a good time.

Reynolds — known for his savvy marketing skills — is aware of the troll as he shared it on Twitter, but took no credit for it. 

The quality of the troll is high as it opens with the logos for Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary and The Pokémon Company, which all fade out.

Then what appears to be the actual film begins with protagonist Tim Goodman (Justice Smith) walking through the city streets for a brief moment before the movie cuts to Pikachu dancing for the rest of the time.

"Um.... Attn @DetPikachuMovie @warnerbros," Reynolds tweeted, tagging the account as if to report it.

The troll video has more than 21,000 views in just a few hours. 

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu is due in theaters May 10.
