Deadpool spoofs Viagra commercials to celebrate Blu-ray release

Are you healthy enough for "Deadpool" on Blu-ray? The Merc with the Mouth asks the hard questions ahead of the hit film's Blu-ray appearance.

Deadpool is one bold super-anti-hero. He doesn't shy away from difficult subjects like brown pants, testicular cancer and chimichangas. He now has a very special message for his fans. The "Deadpool" movie is coming out on Blu-ray and DVD next week. Actor Ryan Reynolds tweeted a promo video that addresses the release in the manner of a Viagra or Cialis erectile-dysfunction ad.

The video features Deadpool in full superhero costume hanging out on a farm with his lady-love, doing typical erectile-dysfunction ad activities such as woodworking, strolling through a field and cooking in the kitchen. The his-and-hers bathtubs from the Cialis pill marketing efforts make an appearance at the end.

Deadpool can't help but be raunchy. It's part of his charm. That's why he's sanding a chair leg and peeling a banana. If you're looking for subtlety, go somewhere else. If you're looking for bonus Deadpool laughs, then cue up his Blu-ray ad and enjoy. And note the hashtag.
