I just came across a pretty funny video created by ZDoggMD, a physician in California who is really into making music video parodies about health topics. He’s kind of like what would happen if Flavor Flav and Weird Al Yankovic had an illicit love-child who went to med school. (Man, I’m dating myself with that reference…)
Speaking of dating yourself, ZDogg just created a video spoof of Michael Jackson singing about (and performing!!) testicular self-examination to the tune of “Man in the Mirror.” Yes, it’s a little corny but it’s actually kinda funny and it has a good message about checking out the boys on a regular basis. All in all, not a bad way to kill a few minutes.
We’ve covered testicle cancer on BuckMD before, and that message still stands. Check yourself regulary, and if you find anything that doesn’t feel right, be sure to come in and see us. I promise – we won’t sing. And our exam gloves don’t have sequins on them.
