Marvel’s Merc With a Mouth has a message for all you guys out there, and delivers this PSA in a way that only Deadpool can. In a new video posted on Ryan Reynold’s YouTube page, Deadpool is urging you to “Touch Yourself Tonight,” and then goes on to explain how you can — and frequently should — check your happy sack for signs of testicular cancer. A serious topic, delivered in Deadpool’s light, comic, style, testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men aged 15-35 (according to the popular antihero).
With the Deadpool movie marketing team in full swing ahead of next month’s release, we’ve seen everything from romance themed billboards aimed at tricking your significant other into seeing the movie with you, to billboards with the Canadian favourite poop emoji, and now this important PSA. It’s cool that Marvel is using the momentum and interest surrounding the upcoming Deadpool movie to touch on a more sensitive subject, after all humour can at times be the easiest way to break the ice on sensitive and serious issues.
Check out the PSA below (it might be borderline NSFW depending on your work environment) then let us know what you think about it in the comments below, or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook — and don’t forget to “tweak the tomatoes before you go cucumber crazy.”
