Trolli Has Made Sweets Based On Deadpool’s Baby Hand

There were plenty of fucked up moments in Deadpool, one of which involved Ryan Reynolds' character sawing off his own handcuffed hand and allowing it to slowly but surely grow back over time.

While Deadpool is a badass superhero whose body has an impressive ability to regenerate, his powers are less full-on than Wolverine's - the adamantium-clawed X-Man can pretty much recover from something in a few seconds.

Unfortunately Wade Wilson has to endure hours and sometimes days for certain things to grow back and in the movie we copped a good look at his wee baby hand maturing.

It was disturbing to say the least.

But if you weren't totally gross out by it, then you can now eat his tiny hands in jelly form.

Deadpool has teamed up with sweet factor Trolli to launch Sour Brite Tiny Hands. They're essentially exactly like the company's other products, such as sour octopus, sharks and worms, but they take the form of the superhero's hand.

Trolli launched a slick advertising campaign - which we reckon is a joke, surely - promoting the sweet's 'delicate curves', describing them as 'firm, yet soft' and 'intensely satisfying'.

They even got a quote from the man himself, with Deadpool saying: "When Trolli approached me about recreating one of my body parts as a tasty morsel, my hand wasn't what I had in mind. I was thinking something bigger and dirtier - my brain.

"But they said size could be a choking hazard. So instead I just gave them a hand. Literally."

Periscope Creative director Dustin Joyce told Ad Week: "I like to think of the creative work as a 'tiny' middle finger to traditional, predictable advertising. Trolli and Deadpool both thrive on being the anti-mainstream versions of their respective categories."

Posters have popped up around America in yet another promotion for the sequel, which comes out in the US today. Box Office Pro forecasts the film could make anywhere between $125 million (£92.5m) to $150 million (£111m) this weekend.

If that comes true, then it will finally knock Avengers: Infinity War off the top spot in which it has sat for a good four weeks.

Reynolds will no doubt be excited at taking a rest from promoting the shit out of the Marvel film after spending what seemed like years jet-setting all over the world to take over Manchester United, perform in a unicorn outfit on a Korean singing contest, dance over a Celine Dion song and many more stunts.

But if you haven't yet got around to seeing the movie, you may as well munch on his tiny hands in the meantime.
