Earlier this week, we brought you the story of Ryan Reynolds dunking all of those recent corny-as-hell celebrity public service announcements by, well, giving his own public service announcement. It was yet another example of why Reynolds has remained one of the most widely well-liked celebrities of the last decade.
As I wrote in the original article, if you’re a guy like Reynolds, you must be doing everything in your power to try and remind people that all celebrities aren’t like the self-important weirdos that decided what the world needed was their rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine”.
So, instead of posting some sort of corny plea, Reynolds instead went the simple yet effective route: a clip from Deadpool 2.
To be honest, being Wade Wilson stuck in the X-Men mansion doesn’t sound all that bad these days. I’ve been inside for essentially two weeks now and I’ve lost all sense of normalcy. Every day and every hour seems the same. Exercise is a figment of my imagination. A social life? What in the fuck is a social life? I mean, fuckin’ hell, I’m sitting here watching The Revenant at 8:30 in the morning. Nothing makes sense anymore. I tell ya — and I’m not really an outdoorsy person — but when this shit is over, I may live outside for a week. Buy a tent, grab all my shit in my bedroom, and move into the courtyard of my apartment building.
