There are few men in the world with manlier reputations than Liam Neeson. Ordinarily, the actor keeps his rep up by beating the hell out of people on screen and projecting an image of effortless cool, but today, he did it by slapping on some pink underwear and taking one for the team.
Sometimes being a man means doing things you don’t want to do for the good of other people. So, in order to support breast cancer research , the Englishman appeared on Ellen this afternoon, sported tiny trunks with Barbie-like brightness and sat inside a dunk tank. Go ahead and take a look at footage of the incident below…
The breast cancer survivor throwing balls at the dunk tank looks like she was having the time of her life, and there’s at least a dozen shots of Ellen with a goofy, smiley look on her face. Really, that’s why people watch this show. It’s just good old fashioned infectious fun, and somehow, in the midst of these loveable good vibes, Neeson raised twenty thousand dollars from Shutterfly.
For the rest of the month, there will be plenty of breast cancer tributes and segments on daytime television, but at this point, it seems unlikely any will match the warmth and positivity of this one.
Well played by everyone involved.
