Watch Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool Shake His Stuff in Heels for Celine Dion’s ‘Ashes’ Music Video
Song hails from the soundtrack to “Deadpool 2,” opening May 18May 3, 2018
In the latest trailer for “Deadpool 2,” Ryan Reynolds’ foul-mouthed, mutant mercenary recruits a variety of different heroes to try and save the day, including a beekeeper. As unexpected as several of those pairings may seem, they’re nothing compared to his newly revealed team-up with multi-platinum recording artist Celine Dion.
On Thursday, Celine debuted a music video for “Ashes,” an original song she recorded for the “Deadpool 2” soundtrack. The video (above) starts off normally enough, with the Oscar-winning songstress belting out one of her trademarked ballads on stage while bits and pieces of Reynold’s upcoming action film flash across the screen.
But things take a turn for the weird at about the 90-second mark after Deadpool is shown waiting in the wings. The irreverent superhero soon takes the stage alongside her, and delivers an interpretive dance for the ages while wearing a pair of high heels.
As of Thursday afternoon, the Canadian superstars’ unexpected collaboration is the top-trending video on YouTube and has already been viewed over a million times on Ryan’s Twitter feed.
“Deadpool 2” opens May 18 in theaters. Sneak a peek at the latest trailer (below) and get more on the film’s soundtrack—featuring the likes of Peter Gabriel, Cher, and Pat Benatar—here.
