DALLAS, May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- How does the joke go? A sarcastic mercenary in a red spandex supersuit with a bad attitude walks into a bar. Ladies and gentlemen, in honor of the Deadpool Blu-rayTM release, TGI Fridays has partnered with 20th Century Fox to offer fans the chance to indulge their inner anti-superhero with drinks inspired by the "Merc with a Mouth."

Even super-violent, anti-heroes need a freakin' Friday once in a while. That's why Fridays created a limited-time, movie-themed cocktail menu. Nothing says Deadpool like a big mouthful of one of these (you know you want one):

"We felt the love the second Deadpool told Weasel that Jacksonville has a wonderful TGI Fridays," said Brian Gies, Chief Marketing Officer. "Fridays welcomes all heroes, whether they're super, anti, or somewhere in-between, to have a good time, any night of the week."

For a limited time, Fridays also will make it easier – and more affordable – to take Deadpool home by offering a special $4 discount off the purchase of the movie on Blu-rayTM at fridays.com/deadpool If that's not massive enough, fans can find out just how well they know Deadpool with a Buzzfeed quiz.

Get into your local Fridays now through June 19 to sip the sarcasm and get a load of Deadpool, because...#priorities.
