The official Deadpool trailer arrived on Tuesday night and blew the Internet’s collective mind, but star Ryan Reynolds‘ appearance on Conan was something else entirely.

Reynolds filmed a characteristically bizarre scene for the trailer announcement on Conan, appearing in character as the titular wisecracking assassin and massaging Conan O’Brien’s semi-naked body—with panda tears.

The Deadpool people sure do know how to market their movie.
