SkyBalls – Giant flying balls of awareness

Barcham 26 July 2013 24

Man I hope they bring it to Canberra.

I mean they would have to right? We’re like capital of awesome hot air balloons with naughty bits.

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/chris-o-dowd-mcac-present-skyballs

Here’s FIVE REASONS why the world needs a hot air balloon shaped like a gigantic testicles right now:

1. The death of young men to testicular cancer can be prevented.

2. Ignorance & embarrassment are just two reasons this cancer causes any more trouble than it needs to. The way we can stop this is through awareness & confrontation.

3. A massive flying ball-sack will be impossible to ignore. And hopefully chip away at the taboos still surrounding this nasty little cancer.

4. Our balloon will also have a lifespan & a cost efficiency that will outperform any other media initiative: It is reusable, easily transported globally and should last us at least 10 years.

5. It’s a massive pair of flying gonads!

So we are probably going to upset a few people along the way. Sorry about that 😉

But ‘SkyBalls’ will give Male Cancer Awareness Campaign the ultimate awareness tool.

It is indisputable that early detection and early treatment are vital in this fight.

And it could be argued that ‘SkyBalls’ will be the world’s biggest awareness project. This balloon will certainly be MCAC’s main focus in our campaign to make young men aware of the early warning signs of testicular cancer.

Increasing awareness of testicular cancer is really important. And if one life gets saved because someone sees our balloon and is inspired to start #JustCheckingForLumps then it will more than have repaid the amount of money we will have invested in this project.

£100k will allow us to design and build the balloon. PLUS it will cover the full operational / flying costs for its first year.

This enormous billboard in the sky has a lifespan of over a decade. It can, and will, travel across the world. And we hope it will deliver its vitally serious message from above in a way that will bring plenty of smiles and editorial coverage on the ground.

You can donate as little or as much as you want in most international currencies and we are operating a fixed funding structure so will only take the cash if the project gets fully funded.

If you need further convincing there are plenty of perks donated by some rather special friends of Male Cancer Awareness Campaign.

Oh come now there’s something about scrotum and pollies that is rather poetic and apt methinks..

But – the scrotum carefully cradles the testicles which give joy to both the owner and those allowed to play with them, as well as pleasing to look at, and therefore play an important part in the continuation of the human race.

Politicians . . . are none of the above.

Wow, you really love scrotums.

If they had the balls to attach facial images of various pollies, particularly the ones I despise, then i’d even chip in. Let’s see, perhaps head honcho of Christmas Island on one and Corbell on the other wearing a crown of thorns resembling train tracks..

No! You want to desecrate the visual purity of a well filled scrotal sac with politicians! You heathen!

ps. a heathen I am without doubt!

One set of balls you don’t want to drop.

Quite right #17. The girls are streets ahead and very effective in organising support and research for women’s health.

Sorry fellas, but the evidence is that, disturbingly often, “She’ll not be right”.

Lumps, bumps, niggles, spots, the unusual – whatever it is, get it checked.

Chris O’Dowd and balls. Fantastic. Will actually donate to this. Considering the ubiquity of women’s health awareness campaigns, it’s about time something was done for the men.

He did a very funny one to bring attention to male breast cancer, it’s on youtube

Obviously they got a better deal than the Tittycarp.

You have to pay a lot more for whimsy. Sky-scrote is a bit more in your face.

You have to admit though, it’s got a lot of… chutzpah.

… and if you were to shave them, it would look just like Peter Garrett.

This one will never get off the ground 🙂

Looks like he had a nasty accident with a pair of bolt-cutters.

Nice idea, but the message might get a little lost. It might be best just to let it hover over Fyshwick, in company with the pendulous cetacean.

How awesome,perhaps we could have both the tittycarp and giant bollocks side by side passing over parliament as some sort of salute to those below 🙂
