With little to no fanfare, Reynolds shared a tweet purporting to have the link to a "FULL MOVIE" version of "Detective Pikachu." He tagged his tweet @DetPikachuMovie and @WarnerBros, as if he was letting them know about this early leak.
What he was really letting them know was to watch how many people clicked on the link only to be subjected to Pikachu dance on a loop for more than an hour and a half. And by "subjected to" we mean absolutely treated, because it is an adorable delight.
The detail in the fake movie is absolutely hilarious, including intricate studio introduction sequences and even a totally believable opening scene. It even has a watermark that makes it look like it's Reynolds' personal screener.
After about a minute, though, it became a dance video with some pretty catchy electronic music and Pikachu just dancing his little heart out ... on a loop. Reynolds fans were loving every minute of it, though some of them had to admit he'd got them pretty good.
