Why Does This Game Of Thrones Actor Scratch His Nuts?

Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow on Game Of Thrones, was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Friday. And, wouldn’t you know it, he talked about balls. More specifically, Harington talked about a weird superstition he has. It was Friday the 13th, which is a perfect day to talk about superstitions and unnatural fears. Whenever Kit Harington sees an ambulance, apparently, he scratches his balls.

According to him, it’s an old Italian tradition that brings good luck to the passenger inside, but that sounds a little suspicious. But let’s be honest with each other: do you really need a reason to scratch your balls? You don’t need one to scratch your back or your leg or any other body part, so why shame the nutsack?

Harington’s character on the show, Jon Snow, recently came back from the dead. If handling your balls every time you see an ambulance had something to do with that, sign us up.
