In true Deadpool fashion, Ryan Reynolds has responded to the internet petition that has been circulating call for the character to host an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live.

In a video response, Deadpool hilariously spoofs Kanye West’s recently leaked backstage SNL meltdown saying:

“I’ve got the biggest opening rated-R movie of all time. I’m 50% more influential than MC Hammer, Apostle Judas Iscariot, the Kia Sorento, 10% more influential than Barbara Bush, the Muppets, Bob Newhart.”

Thus far the online petition to have Deadpool host SNL has racked up over 72,000 supporters and the number continues to climb. It is the hope that the petition will grab the attention of SNL creator Lorne Michael and he will agree to bring Deadpool to SNL.  As the petition states

How would this not be hilarious having Deadpool in sketches, breaking the 4th wall, and inserting some of his brand of humor (obviously toned down a bit for network television)!?!?”

Seriously, how can they go wrong here!  Check out the Deadpool (a.k.a. Ryan Reynolds) Kanye spoof video below:
