Subversive Marketing Campaign for New @DeadpoolMovie Has Begun


By lauradud84 / / Hang on for some of the craziest marketing promotions for a movie you’ve ever seen. After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Deadpool graces the cover brandishing his own Thanksgiving turkey and Christmas-themed apron and the issue begins with a Deadpool-penned Holiday Letter, after which Deadpool offers a six-step process for carving a turkey. The issue wraps up with a pair of Deadpool’s recipes, one for “D’s Spiced Nuts” and another for “Creamy Clam Skinny Dip.”

“Deadpool’s persistence to be in Good Housekeeping was impressive — initially we had no idea who he was, let alone that he was a fan of the magazine,” says Jane Francisco, Editor in Chief, Good Housekeeping. “But after repeated attempts to ignore his… passion… we came to a compromise. He could appear in one issue, if he promised to stop leaving care packages at our editors’ homes and agreed to maintain a 50-foot distance from the Good Housekeeping offices and our staff.”
