Deadpool shows up on Comic-Con toilet seat covers, because of course he does

Deadpool is everywhere at Comic-Con. I mean, EVERYWHERE.

Deadpool is making a different kind of splash at San Diego Comic-Con

In one of the more bizarre marketing stunts spotted here, the PR people behind Deadpool 2 stuffed toilet seat covers in at least some men and women's restrooms at the San Diego Convention Center, ensuring the "Merc with a Mouth" gets a little too close to your bottom. 

"This is all Fox could afford!" was written above his head.

That's not even close to the truth. Fox set up a small booth with an animatronic Deadpool fronting a band of Chuck E. Cheese's-style animal band members (Deadpool's Super Duper Dance Party) to promote the upcoming release of Deadpool 2 and the Super Duper Cut on Blu-Ray and DVD.

Sadly, the animatronic Deadpool didn't sing, even though we know he's secretly great at it. Instead, he played the X-Force theme from Deadpool 2. 

Deadpool 2 performed well at the box office after winning critical praise for its comedy and proved to be a worthy sequel.

There's a Deadpool panel slated for Comic-Con on Saturday.
