I’m really proud of this little moment, so I decided to share it with all of you.
I follow Screen Junkies on Twitter and therefore I saw creator of Honest Trailers and host of Movie Fights, Andy Signore tweet that he would love to have Ryan Reynolds do the Deadpool Honest Trailer. Signore wanted to get every one of the Screen Junkies following to barrage Reynolds with tweets begging him to get in on the joke.
I liked the idea of getting in on the joke as well. On March 27th, 2016 I created the above photo and sent it to Signore via Facebook. I simply explained that I had made the image to help get Reynolds on the show. Signore responded with a prompt laugh and thanks, which was really pleasant.
I hadn’t seen Signore tweet the photo on March 28th, so I decided to tweet it myself. I’ll admit that I was a little bummed that I hadn’t seen my photo on Twitter, so I went ahead and posted it a few more times just to see if it would get to Reynolds himself (wishful thinking, I know :)).
On April 1st, after posting the image once more, Signore contacted me and told me that he had tweeted it, but that immediately after he had tweeted the image, Reynolds privately contacted him! I was ecstatic! Understandably, Signore asked me not to share the wonderful news, but he privately thanked me once more for my contribution.
I’ve had to keep the secret for over a month, but now that the cat is out of the bag, I’m glad I could share that Film Faculty officially contributed to getting Ryan Reynolds to do the Screen Junkies Deadpool Honest Trailer and that Signore is a good chap!
