If there's one thing that the Deadpool franchise is known for (other than smartass humor and gratuitous violence), it is the A+ marketing campaigns. We have seen Wade Wilson take over a wide variety of brands and lend his particular sense of humor to all sorts of formats, but the latest promotion for Deadpool 2 is simultaneously one of the grossest and one of the best. Specifically, we now know that Deadpool 2 has teamed up with the folks at Trolli Candy to allow consumers actually to eat Wade Wilson's tiny hands. Check out the promo video, below.
It's short, sweet and to the point. In a world where fans go crazy for tie-in merchandise, it looks like Deadpool 2 is getting in on the action by partnering with Trolli Candy. Starting on May 7, fans of Wade Wilson and his particular brand of sensuality will be able to buy (and eat) tiny Deadpool hands by the handful.
Of course, there's something not specifically mentioned in this video that fans of the original Deadpool know: Wade Wilson has a unique hobby with that tiny hand. If you have seen the first film, then you already know that Wade likes to use the tiny hand to get... familiar with himself in private, along with his crocs and his stuffed unicorn. You can check out the tiny hand scene from the original Deadpool, below.
This is only the latest in a long line of clever promotional material for Deadpool 2. In addition to this particular ad, Deadpool 2 has also released a number of fantastic trailers, as well as a hilarious music video involving Celine Dion. Sure, the first Deadpool movie may have been a hit, but it looks like everyone involved in the making of the sequel is working just as hard to hit that same meta feeling that made the original such a popular movie.
Wade Wilson and his tiny hands will return when Deadpool 2 premieres on the big screen on May 18. As for the tiny gummy hands, the Deadpool 2-inspired Trolli Candy will be available on May 7.
