If you thought it was actually Ryan Reynolds under that Deadpool costume dancing in Celine Dion’s music video in heels, you were wrong.
“Ever wonder, ‘How does Ryan Reynolds dance so beautifully? Did he have 8 bones surgically removed from his body in order to move as if a graceful swan had sex with Fred Astaire?'” Reynolds said on Instagram. “The answer may surprise you. Yes. I did have 8 bones removed from my body. But the dancing was all @yanismarshall.”
On Thursday, a music video was released for Dion’s new song, “Ashes,” which is featured on the official “Deadpool 2” soundtrack, was released.
Wearing high heels and his red costume, Deadpool performs an interpretative dance complete with twirls and sashays. But the video ends up being “too perfect,” and Deadpool tells the iconic singer that they have to redo it, and that she needs to tone it down a bit.
Yanis Marshall, who was a Britain’s Got Talent 2014 finalist and is known for his intricate heels choreography, played Deadpool in the video. On Friday, Marshall took to Instagram to share his excitement of working with Reynolds.
“It takes two to make a thing go right. It takes two to make it outta sight. IT REALLY DOES!!!!! I can’t even begin to explain what’s happening in my life right now and what I’m feeling… but all I know is that @vancityreynolds Is the one! Most humble person I’ve ever met. And just jokes after jokes gotta love him!!!!!” he posted. “And since you have been asking all day… YES It was me as Deadpool dancing around @celinedion !!!!!!!

But the dancing was all @yanismarshall. This man is not just a dancer… he’s an elite athlete, hero, and all around hilarious person. Follow him on Instagram. Put him in movies. Throw confetti at his feet when you see him. He is a gift to this weary world. #Deadpool2
