Dumb ways to die music video for Melbourne Metro Trains

Commissioned by Melbourne Metro Trains to raise transport safety awareness, this cutely morbid animated clip featuring critters with all sorts of death wishes — including falling onto subway tracks and getting run over by a train — has made our social media feeds go berserk for the past few days. It’s helped by its catchy ditty of a soundtrack by Aussie singer-songwriter Tangerine Kitty. If you haven’t already seen it, watching this video may or may not be a dumb way to get a new earworm. We warned you.
