Ryan Reynolds, the voice of Detective Pikachu in the new Pokémon movie, has appeared to have found a leaked version of the popular flick, due out in theatres this Friday.

But let’s be honest, should we ever take the Canadian actor seriously?

Reynolds sent out a tweet on Tuesday, sending his 13+ million followers into a frenzy, while tagging Warner Bros. Studios, alerting the virtual world of a supposed  leaked version of Detective Pikachu.

Under the guise that there was a pirating problem, the funnyman called attention to the film studio, along with the movie’s Twitter page, by tagging both accounts and attaching a link to “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu: Full Picture” on YouTube.


The “pirated” Pokémon movie begins with the logos of both Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment before what looks like actual leaked footage of the film’s opening before cutting to Pikachu dancing for an hour and 42 minutes.

The “leaked” movie which is actually a clever marketing ploy, has already raked in over 5.5 million views, uploaded under the fake YouTube handle, Inspector Pikachu.

The video is embedded below and although Pikachu dancing is adorable, the real Detective Pikachu movies hits theatres on May 10.

Until then, this will just have to do.
