"Parks and Recreation" actor Nick Offerman is back with another bizarre and brilliant "Movember" PSA
. This time, Offerman hands over the mic to his own glorious mustache, which bursts into a rendition of the Irene Cara classic "What a Feeling" from "Flashdance".
Yes everyone, the "stachedance" is now a thing.
Offerman's latest PSA comes at the half-way point for men all around the world growing mustaches in support of Movember. The campaign, now in its 10th year, raises money and awareness of men's health issues; in particular prostate and testicular cancer. Last year's November effort saw the participation of over 1.1 million from around the world, with $147 million raised for health-related charities.
"We say no to beards, no to goatees – we are only about the moustache," the official site declares
. "Why only the Mo? The growth of a new moustache sparks conversations, which in turn generates awareness and educates people on the health issues men face. A beard or a goatee doesn't achieve that. Awareness and education then prompts people to take action and change their behavior, which is impacting and saving lives today. During Movember, each moustache generates more than 2,400 conversations about men's health."
