This Life Saving Underwear Sends a Monthly Text to Check for Testicular Cancer


Testicular Cancer NZ, FCB NZ, Jockey and Farmers team up to launch the 'Remundies'

This Life Saving Underwear Sends a Monthly Text to Check for Testicular Cancer

Testicular Cancer, the most common form of cancer affecting men aged between 18 and 39, gets a kick in the proverbials with the creation of Remundies, launched this week in line with Testicular Cancer Awareness month. 

An initiative created by FCB NZ and produced in partnership with Jockey and Farmers, Remundies is a range of Jockey underwear that communicates with their owner on a regular basis via text, reminding them to check for signs of the disease each month. 

Upon purchasing Remundies, the owner is registered here, and so the conversation begins. 

In collaboration with Darkhorse, Jockey’s Social & PR agency to support Jockey’s initiative, the All Blacks and All Blacks Sevens stripped down to their Jockeys as part of their long-term sponsorship with New Zealand’s favourite underwear brand, Jockey.

Paul Hayes, Testicular Cancer New Zealand, commented: “Every year 150 men are diagnosed with testicular cancer in New Zealand, but it’s beatable if you find it early. It has been great working with the team at FCB who came up with such an innovative idea to create awareness of this life-threatening cancer among a hard to reach target audience”.

FCB ECD’s Peter Vegas and Leisa Walls said: “We’ve been working with the testicular cancer team for six years now. The work has always been focused on creating life saving behaviour change, but the dream was to find a way to raise some much needed money at the same time. It’s taken a few years but Remundies are now sneaking into undie drawers across the country and we couldn’t be happier.”

Remundies are exclusively available at Farmers.
