On the heels of the TNT drama series “King and Maxwell” being canceled after just one season, actress and model, Rebecca Romijn, has taken no time bouncing back. However, this particular camera act is a little different from her norm, and quite humorous. While most thought the short video was a hoax, UPROXX confirms that the video is indeed ‘real.’
In commemoration of Breast Cancer Awareness Week, Romijn has taken a moment to offer her contribution to the worthy cause. In a short video for the comedic website, Funny Or Die, Romijn introduces the “Hand Bra” which pays reverence to the “self-check” tactic that medical professionals often urge women to perform periodically.
The “self-check” examination is a simple process in which women are to simply feel for any lump, thickening, or hardened knots around the breast area. Romijn’s video is a comedic way to raise awareness and a get the message out in a light-hearted manner.
Funny or Die took to Twitter in an effort to get the message out.

Obviously, the message is getting across accordingly, as several fans chimed to offer positive feedback after viewing the short sketch stating that they’d be ‘ordering their Hand Bra.’ Romijn took a moment to re-tweet some of the feedback.
