The Institute of Cancer Research launched it's first commercial with this film, featuring Robbie Williams wearing a pair of fake boobs to warn men about testicular cancer. Robbie says in the commercial: 'Testicular cancer is affecting an increasing number of young men and it can kill. There is no point in being subtle about this disease just because the subject matter is literally below the belt!'
