I realized this morning that, despite a fairly steady stream of ongoing titles, miniseries and one-shots over the past two decades, I’ve never read a comic featuring Deadpool. Therefore, the sum total of my knowledge about Marvel’s popular Merc With a Mouth comes from Wikipedia, trailers for that recently released video game and those “Deadpool vs.” videos. Y’know, the ones where someone dressed as the character dances and fights his way through a comic convention, to “Gangnam Style,” or whatnot.
If Deadpool comics were about him dancing, only occasionally inappropriately, with the denizens of the Marvel Universe while taking periodic breaks to seek out tacos, I’d probably buy them all. And that, strangely enough, brings us to the latest video, in which Deadpool sends up
Alan Thicke and Gloria Loring’s theme song to The Facts of Life Robin Thicke’s inescapable “Blurred Lines” — with a little help from the Marvel Universe — in “Merc Lines.”
I apologize in advance for the tune getting stuck in your head again.
