I’m a huge fan of Bob Ross and his Joy of Painting series, just like so many others are. Though he left us over two decades ago, his impact on people is still evident. Whether it’s thousands flocking to Twitch to watch his old shows, or YouTube creators bringing him back to life in other worlds, there’s no denying how important Ross was to many. Even Deadpool, apparently.
A teaser video has been released for the highly anticipated sequel Deadpool 2 titled “Wet on Wet,” and in it Ryan Reynolds goes full Bob Ross in his own special version of The Joy of Painting. There’s no real point to all of this aside from the fact that it’s hilarious and unexpected. But it all leads to a few quickfire peeks at the upcoming movie.
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.
