Ryan Reynolds has an amazing approach to marketing, whether it be his Aviation gin, Mint Mobile or his feature film projects. Reynolds is a genius and his sense of humor and self-depreciating tone are hilarious. Reynolds is at it again for his upcoming blockbuster Free Guy, except this time it’s bigger?
In the clip, we find out that Taika Waititi’s Antwan has created a bigger, better and buffer model of Reynolds’ Guy to put into the world of Free City in an effort to try and stop Reynolds. An unfinished build, the hulking meathead is known only as Dude, with his catchphrase literally being the word “catchphrase”, because nobody’s managed to come up with a real one yet.
What follows is a bizarre interview where Reynolds has his face jarringly pasted onto somebody else’s body, and it includes a gag about him being so jacked that he can no longer fit into his Deadpool costume, in among jokes about his child being born fully grown with shoes on, and a morning protein shake comprised entirely of human muscle.
Free Guy has been generating some strong early reactions, and while the brief clip of Dude doesn’t give too much away in terms of plot specifics, it does indicate that audiences are in for a wild and unpredictable ride when Reynolds’ latest hits the big screen.
