Since discussions of art are currently all the rage:




This is actually genius, despite the fact it is advertising for a commercial enterprise that revels in vulgarity.

First, the angle at which the character Deadpool is seated parodies Norman Rockwell's iconic "Self Portrait."



The image then takes the character Cable (seat in the background, for those unfamiliar with comic book lore) who is supposed to be a hardened, no-nonsense warrior from a ravaged future Earth and reduces him to comedic proportions by recalling the actor Josh Brolin's work in the 80's movie The Goonies, complete with the painful reminder of the fashion (non)sense of the day.

Oh, and the technical work is well executed; unlike the monstrosities that further besmirch the legacy of the Obamas.
