Marvel comics' anti-hero Deadpool has entered the election fray, and his key platform is promising voters a happy ending.
The character, dubbed the Merc(enary) With A Mouth, is cheekily urging fans to join his No Pants Party.
While it is a stunt to promote the Blu-ray and DVD release of Deadpool on May 25, the film studio behind the R-rated character has put together a list of pledges and promises that would make X-Man compatriot Colossus blush.
Sydney will host the first stop on the "campaign trail," with street artist Alex Lehours painting a mural on the corner of Albion and Bourke Street, Surry Hills.
With an election platform worthy of the most professional politician, the Deadpool mural run with the slogan, "I have a package that will stimulate serious growth". Yep, you read that right.
In case you're wondering, Deadpool's policies include:
- No Pants
- Frequent touching and fondling
- F****ing Chimichangas whenever and wherever possible
- Shoop to be played during the Olympic opening ceremony for the Australian team's walk out.
Actually, we can get behind that last one.
An unconventional hero, Deadpool spent years in development hell before making it to the big screen with an R rating earlier this year.
Fox greenlighted a sequel in February, shortly before the film opened to the biggest opening weekend for an R-rated film with $US132.7 million taken over its first Friday-Sunday run.Suggest a correction
