SkyBalls – Giant flying balls of awareness

By 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.

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 🙂

Are you Nuts?

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.

bundah 10:24 am 26 Jul 13

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 🙂

Thumper 10:24 am 26 Jul 13

Is it me, or has someone recently flicked the switch to vaudeville?

460cixy 10:20 am 26 Jul 13

Maybe it can mate with our titty carp

Ben_Dover 10:10 am 26 Jul 13

So, showing young men a huge ballooon, shaped like a pair of testicles, wil remind them that they too have testicles, and may help prevent testicular cancer.

What a load of bollocks….
