Chris O'Dowd is helping a UK charity raise money to build a very rude hot air balloon

Don’t worry though, it’s all for a great cause.

A BRITISH CANCER charity wants to build a hot air balloon modelled after a very intimate part of the male anatomy, all to raise awareness of male cancer.

The Male Cancer Awareness Campaign in the UK is currently attempting to raise £60,000 to build ‘Skyballs’ – a hot air balloon designed to look like a scrotum.

Whose scrotum? Erm, Peter Griffin from Family Guy, who is also supporting the campaign.

They’re hoping to tour the finished balloon around the world, encouraging people to talk about testicular cancer; “the world’s biggest cancer awareness tool”, in other words.

As an ambassador for the charity, our very own Chris is helping them raise the funds. Here he is in a promotional video:
