Some Legend Has Taken Deadpool’s Marketing Budget And Given Us Idiotic Gold

Some Legend Has Taken Deadpool’s Marketing Budget And Given Us Idiotic Gold

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.

That’s right, the marketers for the film literally shelled out the big bucks to put three emjois on a billboard to entice people to see the film. And so far, it’s working:

The R-rated, Ryan Reynolds-starring comic book film was also recently marketed as a weepy Valentines love-fest, with posters captioned with lines like, ‘A love for which is worth killing’.

You can see a few examples here:

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.
