Open Weekend Post: Hosted by Kellan & his mom talking about mammograms!

Dear Kellan-

Oh sweet heavens. I can’t make it through 5 seconds without having to stop the video because I’m laughing or cringing so hard. This is like watching you and your mom talk about the “birds and the bees” for the first time back in grade school, or junior high or whatever your sensible christian parents thought was a proper age. Of course it was started, interjected and ended with “but you should wait for the mate that’s right from God” (I don’t want it, want it, I don’t want it! sing it with me!). Only this time it’s like you’re the parent telling your lovely mother about breast self exams and then when you say “have you gotten tested lately?” It sounds like your mom may be a bit of a good times gal who’s in need of services from the free clinic.

Then there was talk of pap smears and yearly exams and I had to run screaming from the room because my parent embarrassment level was higher than when my mom used to drop me off at my friends and yell “make good choices” out the window as she drove away. But luckily I made it back in time for you to say you ‘did it’ with you mom and we should all ‘do it’ with our moms and ‘do it’ with other moms! Cause I’m a mother lover, you’re a mother lover we should ef each other’s mothers… ok, maybe that last part was an SNL Digital Short but STILL. KELLAN, COME ON!!! Stop with the PBS After School Specialness of this PSA.

2nd hand embarrassed but love your boobs!

PS But seriously folks, all joking aside Kellan and his mom are totes right, feel yourself up regularly and get felt up by a professional regularly! Love your boobs, because Kellan and his mom said so!! Hey, just think of Kellan telling you to ‘do it’ while you’re getting your boob smashed in the mammogram machine, it’ll make it almost half enjoyable. Not.

PPS I (moon) will be at TwiCon/Eclipse Con today so I will be live tweeting all the craziness from what I’ve already dubbed #CrazyCon so make sure you’re following me as I 2nd hand embarrass myself and see the nuttiness. Oh and the holy trinity… ya know, those guys.

Did you make it through the video without hitting pause? Big ups to Kellan for not laughing TOO hard through this. And feel your boobs up cause it’s important!

    Errrr, didn’t watch the vid.
    Cos I can’t find my earphones (read: I know where they are but can’t be arsed to get out of bed to get them) and my mum and brother are still up so I would just get asked questions, which I try and avoid at all costs.
    But yes, it’s important to feel yourself up. Breast cancer is in my family history which is defs quite scary.
    Your mention of smear tests above reminded me of when I went to the doctor to get a prescription for a chest infection and had the doctor ask me if I wanted a papsmear while I was there. Uhhhhh, no!

  • superhumanmoron

    Kellen is such the activist. Saving boobs one pair at a time! And yes, the doc felt me up last month.

  • eatmyjorts

    My teeth hurt from how hard I gritted them & I have nail marks in my palms thanks to that video. That was more embarrassing than having a smear test, I swear.

    Hats off to you & your massive cojones Kellan! Can you even imagine RPattz trying to sit his Mum down to do this? I can pretty much make my (very British) husband cry by talking about periods he’s so utterly repulsed by all this stuff.

    But I am never, never watching that video again. Especially the bit where Kellan says he did it with his Mum. Is Kellan the world’s first Breactivist?

  • Stacey

    I am equal parts disturbed and proud of Kellan and his mom in that video. Good for him. I do see that there is a possibility of a whole series of these that can be shown in high school health classes and that would be epic. And knowing high school health classes, they’ll still be showing them when my 3 year old gets there. And she’ll be asking, “Who the hell is that guy?”

    Have fun at Twi-con today, Moon!

  • TeamJorts

    Watching that is painfully awkward, but it’s awesome he is speaking out for this cause! I have a friend who’s mother died from breast cancer recently, it’s incredibly tragic and sad! So if Kellan has to talk about pap smears and breast exams with his Mom to get the point across more power to him!

    I wonder what this video would have been like if it was Taylor and Big Daddy?

    • eatmyjorts

      They could do one on testicular self-examination…

      • robzanne

        i think i just threw up a little in my mouth

        • eatmyjorts

          I think I would rather see the wolfpack do this one.

      • Stacey

        That would be equally frightening and fantastic!

      • TeamJorts

        That would be so epic. I can see it now “Hi I’m Taylor Lautner, this is my Dad (Big Daddy eating fish o filet) and we’re here to talk about ball grabbing.”

  • robzanne

    i made it to 25 sec, when he did a ‘Rob’ and mentioned his conception !

  • FacePunch

    I’m not clicking on the video… it’s a booby trap.

    :D

    Very important message though!

    Have fun at the con! Lotsa pix plz. And if you see Pattinson Pants lady this time, grab her and get a real interview! :)

  • Nadia737

    His next promo will be talking to his Dad about getting his annual prostate exam.

  • KinkyKiss

    I get too embarassed to get felt up!
    So I try to do it myself…

    Its a strange concept to have my dr,
    Who watched me grow
    Feel me up…

    We’ll see :)

    • superhumanmoron

      Eh, once your Dr. has poked around down south, a lil’ boob grab ain’t no thang.

      • superhumanmoron

        Ok, now that I read that perhaps “poked” wasn’t the best choice of words….

  • Luludee

    Lol, that was really awkward, I think moreso for Kellan than his mom. She had a really funny look on her face though, like she was really annoyed.

    And what was she reading? It’s a bit blurry on my phone, but could it be Twilight or Eclipse?

  • http://www.twitter.com/antisocialangel fangbanger

    Aww…. I love him even more now! :)

  • Bea

    I made it 13 seconds before I couldn’t take the embarassment anymore.

  • mandie k

    hey i was wondering what questions were chosen for steph’s interview? congrats by the way on being chosen. also, i kinda had one you might consider, i would love to know what edward heard mike newton thinking when he offered to help fix his car. pg. 41

  • robsfuturemate

    I don’t usually come to LTT, (I’m a Rob girl all the way) but today I’m glad I did.

    Moon, you seriously quoted the DC TALK!!!??? I love it and now you even more!! I was singing along even before I realized what I was singing!

    I don’t want your sex for now, wait until we take the vow…

    Thanks Moon!

    Love,
    Mate

  • robsfuturemate

    Sorry, just need to get this song out of my head!

    Yo! S-E-X is the test when I’m pressed. So back off all with less than that zest. Impress this brother with a life of virtue, the innocence that’s spent is gonna hurt you. Safe is the way they say to play, then again safe ain’t safe at all today. So just wait for the mate that’s straight from God and don’t give it up til you tie the knot!

  • operarose

    mmmkay I am not watching that video, way too creepy. So when I go to the Dr. later this year I’ll think of Kellen. That really doesn’t help.

    Anyways, I actually just popped on here to ask where is Bobbygee? I need him to help me make sense of this World Cup thingy that’s all over the place. Or at least make some vaguely-entertaining existential rambling comments about all of it.

    • persephone

      Thank you, I’ve been wondering where BobbyGee is too! I loved his comments, he was always so funny. Come back BobbyGee! Come back!

  • Ish

    Was it only me – mind in the gutter girl, but did anyone notice the wording at the end?
    “So I did it with my mom, you should do it with your mom or anyone elses mom…” I dont know the rest as had to stop it there.

    Sorry, so sick but COME ON!!!!!!!!! That is not going to save lives! Giving out naked photos of rob for every boob check and pap smear, well thats a different story…

    • robsfuturemate

      “Giving out naked photos of rob for every boob check and pap smear”

      All kinds of win, Ish!!!

  • persephone

    Ok, so I didn’t pause the video at all… but I did plug my ears and close my eyes through most of it. It’s amazing how the awkwardness of this video so closely resembles the awkwardness of getting felt up by your doctor. I wonder if that’s what they were going for?
