In his classic uncomfortably awkward fashion, Deadpool (AKA Ryan Reynolds) delivered singer Zayn Malik a birthday message for the ages. Zayn shared the video message from the spandex-clad superhero on his Instagram and our skin is pretty much crawling at this point — but in a good way, we promise!
Deadpool surely only had the best intentions. And we have to hand it to Reynolds — he walks the sweet-yet-creepy line like a pro.
The “Dusk Till Dawn” singer turned 25 on January 12th, and Deadpool wasn’t the only one to send Zayn a celebratory message. The singer’s girlfriend, Gigi Hadid (who happens to be gal pals with Reynolds’ wife, Blake Lively), also dedicated an Instagram post to Zayn’s 25 years.
Thankfully, Hadid’s wasn’t nearly as awkward as Deadpool’s.
Happy belated birthday, Zayn! We hope you weren’t scarred too bad by Deadpool’s cake surprise.
