Wade Wilson Would Like a Word With Europe in new Deadpool 2 Spot

Did you know Wade Wilson (better known as Deadpool) is a much beloved son of Canada? Now you do. We’re sure that you are aware that Ryan Reynolds, the man behind the red spandex mask, is also a beloved son of Canada. And really, we can’t think of a more Canadian character than the proper, polite, mild mannered Deadpool. Wait, this doesn’t seem right. Deadpool is from Canada? Yes, yes he is. And while the location of his birth has remained undisclosed by the Canadian government, Reynolds hails from Vancouver, and he’s one of the many massively talented Canadian actors who have made America a better place. Jim Carrey, Rachel McAdams, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Anna Paquin, Ryan Gosling, Keanu Reeves, Evangeline Lilly…need we go on?

Anyway, back to Deadpool—he’s upset with Europe. In this new TV spot, our foul mouthed mercenary needs to have a little word with the European Union about the fact that Canada is not a member. If you’re waiting for the moment where Deadpool somehow gets in another potshot in at Hugh Jackman, you won’t have to wait long—his Australia put down is hilarious. The spot’s actual purpose is to highlight the dates that Reynolds and the Deadpool 2 team will be in Europe (May 4th in Paris, 6th in Rome, 7th in Madrid, 8th-10th in London and the 11th-12th in Berlin), yet it wouldn’t be a Deadpool spot if it wasn’t very nearly NSFW.

For you Deadpool 2 newbies, here’s a brief synopsis for the film: the sequel is centered on Deadpool being prodded by Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) into protecting a mysterious kid named Russell (Julian Dennison) from Cable (Josh Brolin), a cyborg killer from the future. When Deadpool first meets Cable, it becomes clear to the Merc with the Mouth that he’s going to need help—super help—if he’s going to keep Cable from getting to Russell. Hence the introduction of the X-Force, which includes Domino (Zazie Beetz), Bedlam (Terry Crews), old pals Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Colossus (Stefan Kapicic) and another newcomer, Peter (Rob Delaney), who has no discernible powers whatsoever (save for being a lovable dork).

Deadpool 2 hits theaters in America, which is also not a part of the European Union, on May 18.
