Deadpool's 'Wet on Wet' Trailer Parodies PBS Legend Bob Ross

Bob Ross' PBS series 'The Joy of Painting' was an important series to people from all walks of life, and its influence has shown up in places where one might not have expected — like in 'Wet on Wet', the most recent teaser trailer for Deadpool 2. In the two-minute sketch, Deadpool dresses like Ross, replete with white smock and oversize brown afro, and gently talks viewers through a parodic painting lesson.

For those familiar with the Deadpool franchise, the 'Wet on Wet' teaser trailer is an immediate reminder of its R-rated content. Though 'The Joy of Painting' was a very kid-friendly series, the Deadpool 2 trailer infuses Ross' relaxing motif with ample innuendo (not to mention downright profanity). Naturally, the trailer will only bolster fans' appreciation of Deadpool's irreverent, countercultural ethos.
