Deadpool Takes Over Manchester United

By Atiya

The Manchester United uniform got a Deadpool upgrade, the video has the team wearing red and white uniforms which have been inspired by the superhero’s costume.

To top this all up football stars Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata also star in this super funny video have featured in a new video promoting the film Deadpool 2,

Since the first Deadpool movie also had a promotion with Manchester United it was only natural for the witty superhero to include them in the lead up to Deadpool 2.

It forms part of United’s unusual promotional deal with 20th Century Fox, which has seen United players previously appear in adverts for the likes of X-Men: Apocalypse, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and the original Deadpool film.

Somewhat surprisingly, however, this promotion has the feature of being quite funny rather than very awkward, giving the United players a chance to show off their comedic acting talents.

It starts with a young supporter being shocked as he arrives for a match, by a huge banner featuring Deadpool hung on the outside of Old Trafford.

The video then cuts to the United dressing room, where all the players are instructed to wear shirts with ‘Deadpool’ and the No 2 on the back as part of a marketing deal, as well as other branded goods.

The players don’t look pleased when they are given red uniform’s to wear sporting number 2 and a whole lot of Deadpool merchandise including toilet paper rolls, slippers, bathrobes etc.

The video also states that it is a special Deadpool present for the team’s 659 million fans worldwide. There are so many Deadpool inspired merch products that Lingard says, “What kind of shit is this?”

The video concludes with Deadpool looking at the team with a pair of binoculars and saying, “What in the Pogba?” and wondering why the team members are not wearing the official Deadpool kneepads. He then says that he will, “Have Jose’s head for this” referring to Jose Mourinho.

He also jokes at the end of the video saying, ” Well you have to double down on your promotions or you just get buried by Infinity War,” referring to the box office blockbuster Avengers: Infinity war.

Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds and will release on 10th May in the U.S. and 18th May in India.
