Meet Yanis Marshall – The Deadpool In Heels From The Viral Video Of 'Deadpool 2' Soundtrack
First things first, if you haven’t watched the viral video from the Deadpool 2 soundtrack called ‘Ashes’ yet, you need to, because one, it’s by Celine Dion, and two, it has Deadpool dancing in heels. Watch it here.
We had our doubts about Ryan Reynolds pulling off those epic moves on stage. Hey, not underestimating him, but let’s be honest – those kicks and pirouettes, in heels? Even Deadpool has limits. So we knew that there’s got to be someone else behind that mask, someone who is a professional. We finally got our answer. The man behind that mask is Yanis Marshall, a man who is an expert when it comes to dancing in heels.
Yanis is quite famous already, to people who are interested in the domain of dance and keep themselves updated. He got famous with Britain’s Got Talent, where he was a finalist. However, it only took him one audition to grab all the eyeballs. Have a look at that audition here.
Yanis is a dance teacher who specializes in a dance form that is super sensuous and requires one to be extremely flexible. His YouTube channel boasts of a collection of fierce dance covers of famous tracks. His talent, clearly, has been recognized by Ryan Reynolds, who is now a fan. This is what Ryan had to say about Yanis.
The Twitterati, of course, have gone crazy over this. The fans of Marshall are freaking out, and there has been an outpouring of love and support for him. Some had actually guessed it was him after watching the video. “I had a feeling it was Yanis Marshall who was the real dancer (as Deadpool) in the music video for Céline Dion’s “Ashes”. Who else could dance so effortlessly in heels?! Bravo @yanismarshall! ” – one fan tweeted. “I had a feeling it was you!!” another one said on Ryan Reynolds’ post. “I saw the way you were moving and it reminded me of you, then I saw the heels … Beautiful work, AGAIN!”
Yanis is over the moon as well, and can’t thank Ryan Reynolds enough. “It takes two to make a thing go right. It takes two to make it outta sight » ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚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!!!!! And since you have been asking all day… YES It was me as Deadpool dancing around @celinedion !!!!!!!! #Casual #ImStillGagging THANK YOU SO MUCH @deadpoolmovie”
Congratulations and well done, Yanis!
