Deadpool steals the spotlight in Céline Dion’s new music video

Countless comic book movies have given us some unexpected superhero team-ups over the years, but this might be the wildest (and random) one yet.

On the surface, it wouldn’t make much sense for Céline Dion and Deadpool to appear together in anything—although Deadpool would almost certainly be a fan of Dion’s music. But now the two unlikely heroes have been forever linked: Dion’s newest song, “Ashes,” appears on the Deadpool 2 soundtrack, and Deadpool himself makes an appearance in the “Ashes” music video.

And no, we’re not just talking about cutaway shots from the movie. Deadpool literally shows up and takes the stage with dance moves. It’s completely silly and over-the-top, but it also works a lot better than you’d think.

The only problem with the music video, according to Deadpool? It’s too good. But hey, that’s what you get when you recruit Céline Dion for your movie soundtrack.
