Dumb Ways to Die

Dumb Ways to Die

A lesson to us all from Melbourne Metro trains. This darkly enjoyable animation has gathered more than seven million views in the past four days.

The Dumb Ways To Die video and accompanying song, composed by Sydney musician and keyboardist for The Cat Empire Ollie McGill uses mildly sardonic humour to convey the dangers of acting stupidly around trains.
