The former member of boy band ‘One Direction,’ Singer Zayn, shared on Instagram a memorable birthday message from the Merc with a Mouth aka Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds.
Zayn, it’s Wade. Don’t hang up. Uh, I just want to wish you a very happy birthday, again. Uh, I also want to apologize for jumping out of the cake like that. I didn’t realize it was the middle of the night; I had no idea I was in the middle of your bedroom. Uh… I want to thank your security, who were very, very gentle and creative with the taser. So anyway, happy birthday to you and [late Canadian hockey player] Mr. Tim Horton. You share your birthday with a very special Canadian who is very near and dear to my heart. All right.
The singer famous for his “Pillowtalk” and “Dusk Till Dawn” turned 25 on January 12.
Reynolds’ portrayal of the character was crucial to Deadpool’s Box-Office total of $783 million in 2016, which gave it the distinction of being the highest-earning R-rated film ever. Its sequel saw the release date getting preponed by two weeks, is continuing with the viral and out of the box marketing of the original Deadpool.
