So by my calendar, it’s less than a week until the Deadpool 2 premiere (which is on the 16th for us).

Therefore, I will be doing my part for the All Deadpool All The Time lobby and run up and down the aisles of the Hype Train, squealing.

The marketing last time was nothing short of transcendent, and this time it’s been about the same. Celine Dion’s song from the soundtrack? Or at least the video? Oh yeah, this shit’s at 11 y’all.

The latest bit was this ad with Beckham.

Charlie from Emergency Awesome breaks it down.


Okay, not sure I’ll be able to fill the whole week with this much squeeing gold. But the days are trickling away and what else am I going to think about? My 40th birthday approaching?


About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
