Havin' A Ball.

Last weekend, I received an e-mail from the Senior Art Director over at Struck, a company that produces ads and content for various companies and agencies around the globe. Their most recent work was for the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation, encouraging men of all ages to self-check themselves for the early signs of cancer.

Listen. Cancer doesn't care how old you are, and finding a way to reach out to the YouTube Generation with this important message is easier said than done. That being said, I think they pulled it off with the perfect amount of charm, wackiness and head-shaking hilarity. Struck Creative saw the CDP as a good outlet to spread the message, and there was no way I was going to turn them down.

So, check 'em. Once every month, to avoid a potential life-threatening emergency down the road.

Sound off in the comments section and enjoy your day.

I saw the date of this post and got so confused before I realized that you might be in a different time zone than me. Sometimes I forget that the South East does not exist in a vacuum and it's already tomorrow somewhere else.

A hockey themed ad for male self-examination. Amazingly full of funny and win. Top that Susan G. Komen Foundation!

I also giggled at the website at the end:
Check your BALLZ!!
Beautifully put.
MAUS - I sometimes cheat and put the next day's post up before I go to bed the night before. If you're up at the right time, you'll get sucked into the CDP's Wayback Vaccuum and see tomorrow's post....TODAY!

BENJAMIN - Check 'em, so you don't get the Cancer.

CAVEMAN - They did a good job creating something that would attract the YouTube crowd, and raise awareness at the same time. Win all around.
I am way, way, way, way ahead of you on this. One question though. You say to check them once a month, right? So once a day is 30x better, right? To be safe? Check! I'm checking them right now. Oh, hi boss. Gottago
I'm only referring to checking them in a purely medical fashion.

Any other forms of daily self-examination are also appreciated, but must be done under careful supervision.

Man, what a week here on the CDP. On Monday, I talk about drinking gravy out of Colonal Sanders' skull. On Wednesday I make a gay joke. Today, I discuss testicles at length. What will Friday bring?
Will Friday bring sacrilege and/or heresy? 'Cause that would be the bitter, offensive icing on the cake.

And everyone knows how much I like cake!
What will Friday bring?

I'm hoping for nude pictures of Jim Rome.
i like to have my balls checked by a medical professional as often as possible.

preferably a fit young nurse...

and preferably female, drunk on tequila and horny...

god i hope my wife doesn't read this.
MAUS - Mmmm...sacrilegious cake...

JT - No love for Jay Glazer?

DOCTOR P - I've never had a full-out physical yet, but you can bet I'll be writing about it in full detail shortly thereafter.
Thanks again to the CDP for posting this! Glad people are liking the work, it's a good cause...keeping both of your buddies. Pass the work along to your friends. And don't forget to check out more videos at!

When I was 11, me and my mate were messing around in my garden. He rugby tackled me to the floor, then thinking it would be funny, stood up and planted one foot squarly on my dudes. I haven't met up with him outside of school since.

So now whenever I read something about genitals, it makes me go into an automatic fetal position. Sometimes I just wish I was girl. It would make thing much easier.
Once a month isn't nearly enough.
MARK - No problem. I think everyone knows someone with cancer; it isn't isolated to anyone. Humor mixed with education haven't steered anyone astray yet.

CARROT - Good Lord. There are very few things on this earth that are less appealing than ball pain. It's very specific, and it doesn't hurt as much as it just makes you want to die. Instant depression.

I must say that ball pain is a small price to pay for being a guy. Considering all the things that women have to endure on an almost weekly basis, I'll gladly stick to what I've got.

WILL - Agreed, but we're only referring to the medical definition of inspection. Anything else is extra credit.
If only the Testicular Torsion Prevention people could get this kind of marketing.
doctor p is awesome.

CarrotDuff, do you have hedgehogs in your garden?
"Do you have hedgehogs in your garden?"

Is that some sort of thinly-veiled British sexual reference that I don't get?

I don't wanna sound queer or nothin', but hedgehogs totally kick ass!
Our hedgehog is pretty amazing, even if I'm sort of afraid to pick her up.
