Deadpool 2 is heading into its second weekend in theaters, but the good folks at Fox want to thank you for making the film’s first week a great one. In its opening frame, the film managed to break the all-time worldwide opening weekend record for an R-rated movie, and subsequently scored some record weekday numbers, too.
Now Fox wants you to keep the momentum going for Deadpool 2. How? By saying, “Great. You saw the movie this week. Now it’s time to bring a friend!” And, to drive that point home, they’ve released this spoof of one of the most famous examples of friendship in pop culture: The beloved sitcom, Golden Girls.
Check out that “Deadpool 2 Thanks You” Golden Girls spoof right here:
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.
Bonus points if you can convince a friend to come with you based on the bogus synopsis above!
