Everyone likes to pile on Nickelback, and Deadpool has had enough of it.

While recreating the famous bedtime story scene from The Princess Bride with Fred Savage, Deadpool goes on a savage defense of the Canadian rockers after Savage called them "over-produced ear garbage." In response, Deadpool claps back with some hard-to-swallow facts:

  • 50 million albums worldwide
  • 11th best-selling musical act of all time
  • Billboard's most successful group of the last decade
  • 6 Grammy nominations
  • 12 Juno Awards (those count)
  • 6 Billboard music awards
  • 2 American Music Awards
  • 1 People's Choice Award

Savage then apologizes to Deadpool by breaking in to a "How You Remind Me" sing-along.

Aside from having Nickelback's back, the teaser doubles as a promo for the PG-13 version of Deadpool 2, or as it's being called, Once Upon a Deadpool, on December 12. And by the way, $1 from every ticket sold through December 24 goes to Fudge Cancer.
