The character of Deadpool famously beat cancer back in 2016. Now, actor Ryan Reynolds, who portrayed the Marvel anti-hero, and the rest of the crew for the film Deadpool are joining forces with Omaze in an effort to raise money for the charity, F*ck Cancer.
Reynolds appeared in a PSA sporting a pink Deadpool suit to raise awareness for early detection of cancer by encouraging fans to check their testicles and breast. F*ck Cancer also provides support for patients and families living with cancer.
During the PSA Reynolds announces the suit he is wearing will be given away in a drawing. Other merchandise is also up for sale, as well as Reynolds recording an outgoing message for the winners voicemail. In the video, Reynolds uses some cheeky humor, saying:
You may be wondering ‘Why the pink suit?’ Well, so the world can see I have a big old heart-on. That’s heart with a ‘T’, for my new favorite color, pink. The color, not the singer. Personally I’m more of a Celine guy.
He goes on to give suggestions for the suits uses:
Will you add it to your weekly wardrobe rotation? Does it become a colorful addition to your S&M dungeon? Or will you simply nail it to a post in order to scare away birds, children, and the elderly.
You can see the full PSA below.
Twitter was all about supporting this cause.
Some folks didn't have extra cash, but sharing the message is also a way to give.
