One of the funniest parts of Deadpool came at the very end, when the movie made fun of post-credits sequences by paying homage to a classic one from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Now, a new video has decided there's no reason to stop there. What if all of Deadpool was really just a superhero version of the classic comedy? Check out the trailer for Deadpool's Day Off, complete with its own post-credits sequence.
As mashups go, this one is actually pretty fun. You know you're in for something special when it opens with "Ferris" giving his mother a headbutt. From there, we basically have Deadpool starring Matthew Broderick. What's actually pretty fascinating is how well much of the dialogue syncs up. While most of Ryan Reynolds mouth movements are not clear due to the mask, this helps it look like a lot of Ferris Bueller's dialogue matches Deadpool pretty well. This is something that isn't even really necessary for a video that's focusing on laughs, but the extra work by Darth Blender to make it look good is a nice touch.
The highlight, however, is that post-credits scene. While the second of the two sequences in Deadpool gave fans what they were really expecting, details about a potential sequel (though not in the way they were expecting), the earlier scene was, in classic Deadpool fashion, simply a fourth wall breaking joke. Deadpool, on a set that looked identical to Ferris Bueller's house, reenacted the post-credits scene to that movie perfectly. This is where the line-syncing shows its true perfection, We see that Ryan Reynolds copied Mathew Broderick damn near exactly, every step and pause between lines is dead on.
And why shouldn't these two movies mash together so well? They're not all that different. Ferris Bueller and Deadpool have approximately equal views on the concept of authority figures. They both do pretty much whatever they want. Really, if Ferris Bueller were ever to become a physically deformed super soldier, wouldn't you expect him to be a lot like Deadpool?
It should also be pointed out that, other than replacing the audio with the more recognizable "Oh Yeah," Deadpool's Day Off uses one of the original trailers for Ferris Bueller's Day Off as its basis, which is another reason it works.
What do you think of Deadpool's Day Off? Is this the sequel to both movies you've been waiting for?
