Because of the success of the ice bucket challenge, more of these stunts are showing up, with #feelingnuts getting traction now. Now we have to endure watching men feeling their testicles, like British television presenter Rick Edwards.

The latest trend that seems like it might actually have a chance at catching on is more about raising awareness than money, and it uses the easy-to-remember hashtag #FeelingNuts. While it was actually started back in June by the British organization Check One Two, which aims to get men to check their testicles for potentially cancerous lumps, the #FeelingNuts campaign has recently started to spread to the celebrity set.

English television presenter Rick Edwards nominated comedian Ricky Gervais for the #FeelingNuts challenge earlier this week, which consists on nothing more than taking a photo of yourself grabbing your balls:

    Someone on this site has a SERIOUS personal hang-up with the ice bucket challenge. It’s publicity for an underfunded charity, what’s your beef?

    Video stunts are not a new phenomenon. The ice bucket challenge did not invent or even popularize them. Cinnamon challenge, anyone? Planking? Harlem Shake?

      I think Alan’s afraid someone’s going to challenge him to do it. (What if it’s Sean!?)

    I do the “Feeling Nuts” stunt every month…in my bedroom after I have taken a shower!
    Testicular cancer is nothing to laugh at.
    And neither is ALS, for that matter.

      Well, now you can take pictures and get credit for it.

        Nah–what happens in my bedroom STAYS in my bedroom!
        Besides…who would want to look at me in the first place?
        I’m nothing special!
