Surprise! "Deadpool" is a hit, and it's time to celebrate the Wade Wilson way.

It's good to be "Deadpool." The film has become the biggest opening weekend in February box office history as well as the highest-grossing film in the X-Men franchise, among other accolades. So how, exactly, does one celebrate the ever-popular Merc with a Mouth?

With chimichangas and a mariachi band wearing Deadpool masks, of course.

"Deadpool's" Reynolds, Miller Poised to Cash In On X-Film's Box Office Success

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos hosted a party at the commissary to celebrate the film on February 16. Director Tim Miller and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were in attendance, though Ryan Reynolds couldn't make it; the star did stop by a marketing meeting the next day in order to thank the crew and snapped a photo of the event.

The event included a performance from the aforementioned mariachi band, chimichangas (Deadpool's favorite food) and blow-job shots (a mixture of Baileys, Kahlua and amaretto topped with whipped cream), a beverage featured in the film.

How's this for meta? The women and men of Fox Marketing. Their work on #Deadpool changed the game.
