What does it mean, or what is the reference about, when Deadpool says "Me gusta cinco" ("I like five" in Spanish)? When he is counting down his bullets and dancing like Michael Jackson, is he just celebrating?


Yes, Deadpool is just excited about the shot he made with the fifth from last bullet. It's just typical Deadpool randomness.

In the original leaked script, Deadpool celebrated bullet 7 in Spanish instead:

Deadpool FIRES AT THE MIRROR. In SLO-MO, the bullet STRIKES the mirror at an OBLIQUE ANGLE and RICOCHETS perfectly INTO the thug who made the reflection.
DEADPOOL: Ha gusta siete.

The scene was rewritten and things moved around some.

It suggests to me a reference to The Jackson 5..

The Jackson 5, or Jackson Five — and The Jacksons in later years, is an American popular music group. Formed in 1963 under the name the Jackson Brothers, the founding members were Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon. Michael would join one year later...

    How is this a reference to the Jacksons? Just because the number five? Maybe it's a reference to Fab 5 Freddy then. The Jacksons arnt the only famous five, and they don't have any song similar to Deadpool signing in this scene. – cde May 28 '16 at 19:10
  • @cde How many acts feature 'dancing like Micheal Jackson'? – Andrew Thompson May 28 '16 at 20:25

    If the dance was a Michael dance, maybe a comparison video would help make your case – cde May 28 '16 at 20:48

    Personally, I would not be too surprised to find it is actually both answers in one; everyone involved in the Dead Pool movie seemed to expressly go out of their way (over the top) with randomness, and making everything jam packed with 4th wall breaking double-, triple- or more- entendre's. – CGCampbell Jun 2 '16 at 13:25
