Deadpool’s Viagra Spoof


Streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu have become the dominant choice for watching your favorite programs.  Do you ever see DVDs or Blu-rays being sold around electronic stores?  If you thought to yourself, “no I haven’t”, then you are not alone.  DVDs and Blu-rays have become a thing in the past now that people are streaming their favorite TV shows and movies.

Marketing DVDs and blu-rays have become tricky now since sales have been plummeting each year.  People have to work harder with marketing the latest film releases for DVDs and Blu-ray players.  They say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but Marvel proved that wrong with the latest ad for the DVD release of Deadpool.

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds tweeted a promo video of himself in a hilarious advertisement spoofing the Viagra commercials.  The film releases for DVD and Blu-ray edition on May 10th.  Reynold’s pokes fun of the Viagra and Cialis commercials that advertises medicine for men dealing with erectile dysfunction.

This advertisement starts with Deadpool hanging out on a farm with his lovely lady to go apple picking and complete some woodworking.  The couple are then seen cooking food in the kitchen and getting their dinner ready.  After eating their dinner, the couple are seen in two separate bathtubs and looking out to the world.  Deadpool is a raunchy hero, but he makes up for it with his playful charm around people.

Marvel’s Deadpool released on February 12th 2016 and gained nationwide fame around Valentine’s Day.  Ryan Reynolds stars as Wade Wilson, a former special forces operative who works as a mercenary in New York City.  He was subjected to experimental regenerative mutation to cure his lung cancer, which provided him healing superpowers.  His newfound superheroes transformed him into his alter-ego Deadpool.

Deadpool broke the box office with $762 million, making it the 4th highest grossing movie from Marvel.  The film was also famous for having an R-rating for its theatrical release.  Fox Studios confirmed in April 2016 that Deadpool was greenlit for a sequel in the future.

Marvel’s latest stunt for the Deadpool DVD/Blu-ray edition adds to the growing PR success for one of Marvel’s best movies.  Deadpool already received positive reviews from fans during the theatrical release and Deadpool is keeping up his sarcastic tone with the Blu-ray TV advertisements.  As I mentioned before, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.  Marvel worked around that idea with their hilarious Viagra ad spoof.
