Whether you love or hate Nickelback, you gotta admit this is pretty goddamn funny.
Proud Canadian (and full-time shit talker) Ryan Reynolds, who plays Deadpool, has brought in his fellow Canadian countrymen Nickelback into his latest movie trailer for 'Once Upon A Deadpool', where he and co-star Adam Savage debate over the merits of the band's music.
The trailer starts off with Savage taking shots at Nickelback, calling the band "over-produced, formulaic ear garbage". Looking at our text machine, we'd say many of you agree with this statement.
Reynolds defends the 'back.
50 million albums worldwide. 11th best selling musical act of all time. Billboard’s most successful rock group of the last decade, six Grammy nominations. 12 Juno Awards — those count. Six Billboard Music Awards. Two American Music Awards. One People’s Choice Award (Canadian). And a partidge in a fucking pear tree.
The two then end up settling their argument with a rendition of 'How You Remind Me'.
Reynolds posted the trailer on his twitter, with the hashtag #RespectTheBack.
The trailer had only been out for half a day but it picked up thousands of views and lots of attention, even capturing Nickelback's eye, who then later responded via their own tweet.
Good to see Nickelback can have a laugh at it all. Good from them.
