Hugh Jackman, William Shatner Are #FeelingNuts for Testicular Cancer

The #FeelingNuts campaign to encourage men to do a self-check for testicular cancer may be the next viral phenomenon, following up on the immensely successful ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The campaign, which encourages men to do a physical check of their testicles, was started by Britain’s Check One Two organization.

The nonprofit put out an October challenge that challenged men to do the check and use the hashtag #FeelingNuts while confessing their "favorite ways to check."

But it’s Hugh Jackman’s photo and slow-motion video of the star doing his check that may have sent the campaign on a spiral toward viral.



Jackman, who has already dealt with skin cancer, nominated Ricky Gervais, Neil Patrick Harris, and Michael Strahan to do their exams, and Gervais has already posted his. He nominated William Shatner, who posted a photo of himself doing a two-handed examination.



“The awareness of testicular cancer is too important not to grasp this opportunity with both hands,” Shatner wrote as he nominated Josh Groban and Misha Collins.

This potentially viral campaign may be more difficult to publicize because of the photo content.



Despite the more graphic content of the Feeling Nuts campaign, it is a very visible reminder for men to check for a very serious issue.
