Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around for a while, you could miss the chimichangas.
That might be the motto of Ferris Deadpool, and to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the John Hughes classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” Ryan Reynolds himself tweeted a link to the hilarious mash-up that reimagines Marvel’s smart-mouthed superhero as an ’80s teen faking the flu.
“I’d like to dedicate this to a young man who doesn’t think he’s seen anything good today,” the “Deadpool” star writes in his tweet, quoting a line from Ferris directed towards his mopey friend Cameron Frye.
Using a lot of footage from the torture scene where Wade Wilson looks less-than-healthy, the “trailer” cuts away to Ferris’ parents and sister reacting to his illness. Another reason why the clip works well is because Deadpool’s mouth is covered while he’s in uniform, making it easy to dub in classic Matthew Broderick lines. Of course, it also didn’t hurt that the end of “Deadpool” had the character spoofing “Ferris” in a bathrobe.
The highlight, however, might just be Colossus in the Cameron role, staring at paintings and trying to make sense of it all. Ferris Deadpool, you are our hero.
