How would a stranger describe your balls?

The Dove Beauty 'Sketches' ad has been parodied to put testicles front and center.

We've all seen the Dove Beauty 'Sketches' ad right? But if you think women are the only ones with hang-ups about their appearances, you would be wrong. Turns out men are also neurotic about what they look like, especially in the testicular region.

Inspired by the original ad, creative studio Portal A anonymously posted their take on it and it went viral almost immediately. In less than two days, the video has been watched more than 650,000 times and hit the front page of Redditt and YouTube. Portal A then outed themselves as the team behind it.

It's a faithful reproduction of the original, down to the aesthetic, music and tone. But you know, funny. Of course, it's not the only parody to have popped up, there's also this one.
