As one of the very few superheroes that is both a cancer survivor and an expert at dirty jokes, Deadpool is actually the perfect spokesman for testicular cancer awareness -- as revealed in this new promo spot. The clip, which features Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool, finds the Merc with a Mouth once again addressing viewers directly, but this time he's talking about something serious. This spot for ballboys.org.uk gets in the required amount of zingers, but this time the double entendre also urges viewers to check themselves 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.
