There are a several ways to raise awareness about testicular cancer. You can make yellow braclets with a catchphrase like Lance Armstrong did 10 years ago, OR you can create a giant mascot that looks like hairy nutsack to spread the word. Guess which one Brazil chose to do?
Mr. Balls is Brazil's answer to testicular cancer education. There's nothing funny about the testicular cancer of course, but a giant smiling scrotum is a different story. Really, Brazil? This was the awareness campaign you came up with?
"Everybody we need some ideas to get the message out about testicular cancer, any ideas?"
"What if we have famous celebrity who beat the disease do some PSAs?"
"How about a giant ballsack that will take photos with children?"
DING! DING! DING!
Mr. Balls also has a striking similarity to a certain American actor.
