A couple of days ago, Fox released a new Deadpool-themed PSA that featured Ryan Reynolds in full costume touting the health benefits of self-exams to catch signs of testicular cancer early. The video was doubly effective as it was both informative and entertaining thanks to the Merc with a Mouth’s particular brand of humor. It’s one of the best bits of movie marketing I’ve seen in quite a while, but today the fine folks in the public relations department are trying to do one better.
A new PSA featuring Wade Wilson’s alter ego/antihero now turns its attention to the ladies in the room with an eye toward catching any signs of breast cancer early. It’s a little more clinical and less humorous than the previous PSA, but the message is important just the same.
Watch the new PSA from Deadpool below:

Here’s the official Deadpool synopsis:
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
