Watch: Deadpool passionately defends Nickelback against Fred Savage

The argument between the two stems from Savage’s kidnapping, supposedly reprising his role as the “Grandson” from The Princess Bride. Savage derides Deadpool for not being a real Marvel movie.


“You’re Marvel licensed by Fox. It’s kinda like if the Beatles were produced by Nickelback. It’s music, but it sucks … They’re overproduced, formulaic ear garbage,” Savage says.



Unexpectedly, Deadpool decides to counter with “facts” to defend the multi-platinum Canadian rock band. 


“I’ve had it with all this Nickelback hating….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 partridge in a fucking pear tree!” 


Savage apologises sheepishly, before offering Deadpool his outstretched hand and nervously singing Nickelback’s 2001 mega-hit ‘How You Remind Me’. Deadpool graciously accepts and the unlikely duo join in a rousing head-banging duet. 


Once Upon a Deadpool arrives in Australian cinemas tomorrow, Thursday December 13. Nickelback will play three Australian shows in February 2019 in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, with tickets available via Live Nation.
