Please Enjoy This 100 Minute Video Of Detective Pikachu Dancing His Little Heart Out

Can't stop, won't stop watching.

Detective Pikachu is about to hit cinemas and deliver a lightning bolt of nostalgia to your inner 10-year-old. However, some jerk has decided to spoil the fun by “leaking” the film onto YouTube.

Except that the “leak” isn’t really a leak but an super effective troll. Allow me to explain.

A YouTuber by the name of Inspector Pikachu (subtle) has uploaded a 100-minute clip online titled, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu: Full Picture”. This supposed “leak” quickly garnered thousands of views and it was enough to draw the attention of Ryan Reynolds, who retweeted the video.

As it turns out, it was nothing more than an elaborate troll and marketing ploy as the “leaked” video contains about 32 seconds of Detective Pikachu footage and 100 minutes of Pikachu dancing his little heart out to a funky 80s synth beat.

Normally you would expect some backlash for this little stunt but the “leak” is nothing short of brilliant because it’s, well, Pikachu dancing non-stop for an hour and a half and who doesn’t want to watch that? Hell, I can’t even pretend to be mad because it is honestly that good.

Regardless of if you’re a Pokemon fan, do yourselves a favour and watch Detective Pikachu dish out his best moves. You might struggle at around minute 39 so maybe keep it on in the background or something.

Ryan Reynolds Mocking Every YouTube Make-Up Tutorial Ever Is A Thing Of Beauty

Instructions unclear, need to watch again.

There is no shortage of tutorials for basically anything on YouTube these days and every single video seems to follow the same formula. The host starts with an obnoxious “wassup guys” intro that goes on for too long, eye-watering captions and graphics, the actual tutorial itself, and an annoying goodbye segment thanking everyone for watching before begging viewers to “smash that like” button and “don’t forget to subscribe.” Ugh.

It’s all incredibly annoying and yet it is all over YouTube like a plague.

The latest chap to join in on this irritating bandwagon is Ryan Reynolds, who released a make-up tutorial video as a promotional thing for his movie, Detective Pikachu. But unlike every other make-up tutorial video out there, his is an absolute blast as it is essentially him taking the absolute piss out of the concept the entire time.

Would immediately subscribe.

For 60 beautiful seconds, Ryan goes full YouTube make-up artist mode in showing everyone what he does to get ready to play Detective Pikachu and every single line he says is comedic gold.

Apparently all he needs is a black stensil (available at the nearest movie studio closest to you) to apply a bunch of black dots on his face and he’s Instagram ready. Oh and as a last thing for all those wanting to play Detective Pikachu like Ryan, you’ll want to “send you face to an Oscar-winning visual effects company who can render the final product using multi-million dollar technology,” but that’s no biggie.

Eat you your method-acting heart out, Daniel Day-Lewis.

It may be slightly different to the antics he pulled for Deadpool since Detective Pikachu is a kid-friendly movie and all, but Ryan’s promo game is absolutely on point once again and his comedic chops have never been better. In fact, it’s getting to the stage where we’re more interested in watching all the pisstaking marketing stuff he gets up to for all his films than the actual film itself.

Can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve for the upcoming Free Guy but we’re absolutely smashing that “like” button on everything he pumps out.

Detective Pikachu Disapproving Of Psyduck's Physical Affection Is Such A Mood

Find the overly affectionate Psyduck to your disapproving Pikachu.<br />

We’re in the homestretch now before the release of Detective Pikachu and Ryan Reynolds has decided to kick things up a notch by releasing a new trailer because, well, he’s Ryan Reynolds and he does what he wants.

Set to the backdrop of Louis Armstrong’s “What A Wonderful World”, the new trailer takes on a bit more of a weepy mood. While we don’t get any new reveals on the level of Mewtwo and Lickitung or much in the way of plot reveals, we do get a few sweet moments, such as Bulbasaur and Squirtle looking adorable:

Snubbull looking absolutely done with everyone’s shenanigans:

“I hate you and everything.”

But the best moment of the entire trailer is Psyduck pulling Detective Pikachu into a big hug and receiving a look of instant disapproval of being handled in such a manner by an oversized duck.

Just hug it out.

After all the goofiness of the last couple of trailers, the latest one is surprisingly wholesome and, dare I say it, somewhat emotional. Didn’t think I would end up saying that about a movie about CGI Pokemon but here we are.

With so much cuteness in store for us come May 10, Detective Pikachu may be the magical self-care we all need after Game Of Thrones ends and Avengers: Endgame renders us into an emotional mess.

In the meantime, check out the new Detective Pikachu trailer here and find the overly-affectionate Psyduck to your disapproving Pikachu.
