Getting ballsy! Like the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, celebrities are yet again joining in on a clever way to raise awareness for a good cause. This time around, stars like Hugh Jackman, Will Arnett, and more are posting pictures of themselves on social media grabbing their crotches for Testicular Cancer Awareness.
The Wolverine actor was one of the first to accept the challenge by social entrepreneur Sam Branson. "#feelingnuts raising awareness for testicular cancer. Nominating @ActuallyNPH @michaelstrahan @rickygervais," Jackman captioned a picture at the gym, alongside celebrity photographer Nigel Barker and two other male pals. (He even did a slow-motion video for the cause!)
British comedian Ricky Gervais responded with his own crotch grab — and the middle finger. "I accept the @RealHughJackman #feelingnuts challenge for testicular cancer. I nominate @WilliamShatner," he tweeted.
Shatner's response? "Testicular cancer awareness is too important not to grasp this opportunity with 2 hands," he wrote.
Although not nominated by Gervais, Will Arnett couldn't help but go nuts too. "@rickygervais no..all good," he quipped.
Testicular cancer is contradicted by one male every hour in the U.S. The Testicular Cancer Society recognizes April as Testicular Cancer Awareness Month.
