Celine Dion, the queen of the super-ballad, released a new video today with a little assist from everyone’s favorite wisecracking, R-rated superhero, Deadpool. The track can be found on the new Deadpool 2 soundtrack, and is one of only two original songs found on it. The other original is “Welcome to the Party” a Diplo/Lil Pump/French Montana collaboration.
It is great that Celine Dion has become self-aware, and can really play with her persona, much like William Shatner has done. The video begins with all of the earnestness of a straight Celine Dion video, complete with wind blowing gown and her patented hand gestures. About halfway through, Deadpool enter in heels, and commences an interpretive dance, which culminates in them both dancing together. At the end, there is a little banter between the two, when Dion espouses what may become her signature catchphrase, “Listen, this thing only goes to eleven!”
Deadpool 2 releases May 18th from Fox and stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beets and TJ Miller and is directed by David Leitch (Atomic Blonde). You can preorder tickets here.
