True blue Aussie legend Deadpool just wants you to have a great Australia Day.

Well, okay, Deadpool isn’t actually Australian. But the Marvel Comics character, known for his absurd sense of humour, still took the time to make this bizarre video, wishing all Australians a great day next Tuesday.

As it turns out, Deadpool has a lot in common with Australia — he has a shady criminal past, he loves drinking to excess, he likes to make fun of people from New Zealand, and he likes, uh, hats with corks dangling off them.

So yeah, he’s pretty much an honorary Aussie.

Deadpool — starring Ryan Reynolds as the titular hero, alongside Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano and TJ Miller — is in Australian cinemas from Thursday 11 February.
