If you were profoundly injured in an accident and needed something—some kind of goal or reward—to motivate your recovery, what would you pick?
For one guy on TikTok named Chase, it was simply the opportunity to kick his friend Dan square in the testicles that got him going each day as he relearned how to walk—among other things—after a traumatic spine injury.
And as his TikTok documented, it worked like a charm and Dan is in excruciating pain.
It's the feel-good* story of the year!
*some Dan results may vary
It all began when Chase was in a traumatic accident earlier this year that left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. Facing an extraordinarily difficult recovery, Chase's buddy Dan made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
"Learn to walk again, and you can kick me in the balls."
So Chase got to work, not just at relearning how to walk and do basic tasks, but also re-learning how to kick things—specifically, Dan's testicles.
Yes, Chase's physical therapists actually centered some of his treatments around learning how to kick.
As one of them put it in one of Chase's videos:
"When Chase told me he wanted to kick his friend in the balls we had to take a very strategic approach."
"We worked on the right leg, and the left leg to figure out which one was stronger, and clearly the left one is the one for the job."
"His left leg has way more force than I was expecting."
Before long—much, much faster than any of his doctors expected—Chase had made an "insane recovery" and was ready to deliver a kick to Dan's nether regions he won't soon forget. And, of course, he documented it on TikTok for all to see.
Ladies and gentlemen, a newly healed Chase just absolutely breaking his foot off in Dan's naughty bits.
Dan, for his part, couldn't be happier for his friend.
As he put it at the end of his ball-crushing video appearance:
"Chase just kicked me in the balls and I feel so good."
May we all be so lucky to have a friend so dedicated he'd let us annihilate his testicles for the sake of our health.
