Watch: Deadpool Spoofs Kanye West’s ‘SNL’ Rant

In a stunning example of #PeakInternet, Ryan Reynolds has released a video of himself as Deadpool spoofing Kanye West’s notorious “Saturday Night Live” meltdown.

The clip is a response to the Change.org petition to have Reynolds host the show in character, which has collected more than 69,000 signatures.

“I’m 50 percent more influential than MC Hammer, Apostle Judas Iscariot, the KIA Sorrento, 10 percent more influential than Barbara Bush, the Muppets, Bob Newhart,” Reynolds says. “60 percent more influential than the iPhone 5, shredded cheese and Dr. Ruth.”

The sailor-mouthed Deadpool also echoes West’s repeated “Don’t f— with me” and his promise to “break the motherf—in’ Internet.” He even manages to work in a few jabs at his favorite punching bag: Wolverine.

The description for the video, titled “Why Deadpool won’t be hosting SNL” and uploaded to Reynolds’ YouTube account, reads, “Actually Deadpool was going to host back in the ’90s, but then this happened. Thank god Tom Hanks was available that week.”

“Deadpool” has been a smash success at the box office since bowing last Friday. It netted $180 million in its first week and set a record for an R-rated film debut.

Saturday Night Live” will return March 5 with host Jonah Hill and musical guest Future.
