"Deadpool" Cancer Awareness Vid Tells Viewers How To Tweak Their Tomatoes

The Merc with a Mouth is now a Merc with a Mission. The second "Deadpool" promo spot focusing on testicular cancer awareness has been released, and it features more puns for private parts than you can possibly count -- but it's for a great cause. The video, narrated by "Deadpool" star Ryan Reynolds, finds DP casually perched on a pool table while he walks viewers through a routine testicle check in order to spot cancer early. Deadpool himself is one of the few super-characters that's also a cancer survivor; couple that with his propensity for dirty double entendres and you actually have the perfect super-spokesman for testicular cancer.

Directed by Tim Miller and starring Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano and more, "Deadpool" opens in theaters on February 12.
