Reynolds, 38, appeared on the Conan show Tuesday night to promote his new movie Deadpool, in which he plays Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool, a sarcastic mercenary with healing powers. But the actor didn’t need to explain Deadpool to O’Brien.
“You don’t need to explain to me who Deadpool is,” the host declared. “That guy once saved my life.”
Then, in very Conan fashion, the show cuts to a skit of O’Brien topless on a massage table with Reynolds, dressed as Deadpool, rubbing him down with panda tears.
O’Brien, as anyone would be, is in pure ecstasy.
Things take an awkward turn, though, when the Marvel superhero notices O’Brien’s rear end – or, lack thereof. He asks: “Where is your a–?!”
Deadpool will hit theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
