In case you’d missed the ridiculousness that is the string of Deadpool marketing stunts, we’re here to keep you clued in.

A new billboard has cropped up to promote the film, and it uses just three emojis to spell out the name of the film.

Deadpool also hits cinemas on the suspiciously-close-to-Valentines-Day date of 12 February. One thing’s for sure, it certainly shakes things up from the usual movie marketing we’re used to seeing. Even if it is a little shitty.
