Deadpool is back and you know what that means: It’s arts-and-crafts time?!

The teaser trailer for Deadpool 2 dropped Wednesday morning, featuring Ryan Reynolds channeling his inner Bob Ross as he paints a picture of the hugely anticipated anti-superhero sequel using all the colors of his very bonkers rainbow (including such skewed hues as “A Clockwork Orange,” “Soylent Green,” “Mennen Black,” “Box Office Gold,” “Pretty ‘N Pink,” “Betty White,” and, of course, “Yellow Snow.”).

Before we get to see Mr. Pool’s completed masterpiece, we’re treated to a few tantalizing glimpses of the new action, featuring  a combination of returning characters and newcomers, notably Josh Brolin’s Cable — all of whom assemble in oily form on a Thanksgiving canvas by the end of the teaser’s two-minute running time.

Fox also released the, um, official synopsis for the sure-to-be-demented Deadpool 2:

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor — finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Directed by David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, John Wick), Deadpool 2 stars Reynolds as the Merc With a Mouth, Brolin as time-hopping frenemy Cable, Zazie Beetz as lucky mutant Domino, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stepfan Kapičić as Colossus, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, and Karan Soni as Deadpool’s cab driver, Dopinder.

Deadpool 2 crashes theaters June 1, 2018. Consider yourselves warned.
