The ‘Deadpool’ Superb Owl Commercial

I’ll admit it — it does feel like there’s no way anyone could NOT know¬†Deadpool hits theaters on Friday, February 12, 2016, but that’s because I mostly live in a bubble full of people who have been tracking this for years. On the other hand, wouldn’t Deadpool himself completely carpet-bomb us with his presence if he were real? However we slice it, the marketing team for Fox has busted their humps selling this film in creative ways that actually fit perfectly with the tone of the movie.
