A brand-new TV promo for Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool was released during last night’s episode of The Bachelor.

Keeping with the theme of love -- the movie will be released during Valentine's Day weekend, after all -- the new promo sees the Merc With a Mouth telling us gals (because who else really watches The Bachelor?) his is not a superhero movie ... but a love story. Awww.

The new promo was tweeted by Deadpool Movie with the pretty funny caption: “Never judge a book by its cover - unless it’s the Kama Sutra (then we can be flexible). #DeadpoolOnTheBachelor” and released by 20th Century Fox with this other hilarious caption: “Deadpool | Blatant Bachelor Baiting TV Spot (w/ 2% real roses).”

I just love the irreverential tone of it all, and the fact that Deadpool brakes the fourth wall in such blatant (see what I did there?) and hilarious fashion all. the. time. Check it out!

Directed by Tim Miller and starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Stefan Kapicic and Brianna Hildebrand, Deadpool will open in movie theaters on Feb. 12.
