Watch Salt-N-Pepa and Dancing Deadpools Celebrate Ryan Reynolds’ MTV Movie Award Win

1 minute read

Before Ryan Reynolds could get out of his seat to accept his award for Best Comedic Performance at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night, the Deadpool actor was interrupted by a blast from the past: hip hop group Salt-N-Pepa serenading the audience with its 1993 hit “Shoop.” The song, which featured prominently on the Deadpool soundtrack, was brought to life by a gaggle of Deadpool look-alikes dancing raunchily across the stage in homage to Reynolds’ award-winning antihero.

Reynolds thanked Deadpool‘s steadfast fans for their devotion to the film, a 10-year passion project for him, before shouting out his wife, actress Blake Lively. “Everything I do is to make her laugh,” he said. “Especially the sex.”

Reynolds will have another shot at the award as the smirking “merc with a mouth,” as a Deadpool sequel is already in the works.
