Gruesome Australian Ad becomes hit: Gone viral

ETA: Many thanks to AmberLeaf who found the vid



I don't see it on You Tube yet but I have no doubt it will be.

Personally I did not find it too gruesome. Had they not used cartoons it would have packed not more punch!

Not really much more you can say about it

Funny lol

I stuck a fork in a toaster once, young and dumb. I was just out of bed, that woke me up.

That was funny!! Gruesome... I don't think so. I wouldn't suggest a
six year old to watch it or a Christian, but I like it.

Anyone that doesn't giggle at that has a lame sense of humor IMO.
Lol.. Lol
Peace

Nice one, but they forgot my latest favorite.

- Dressing as a sasquash on a highway to pull a prank on people.

That was too precious to be considered gruesome. The song is pretty catchy as well. It has a good beat and it's easy to dance to... I'll give it a 7!

That was AWESOME!! I especially like the kidney character as it's flashing it's money with a huge grin on their face. Truly an original.

Wish I could listen right now as well as watch. Have to come back later, but that was very funny.
I was completely unaware that snakes liked hotdogs.

Thanks for sharing that. It's now among my downloaded saves for a collector's item.
I can't say that I've often seen a commercial so humorous on such a serious issue...to such a GOOD effect. I mean, they leave nothing to the imagination but it's so perfectly to context of the message being delivered! I say A+ from start to finish and an example of covering a nasty topic with class.
Great one!

And a real life version - well sort of!

Look out for the man photographing the train! Made me wince.



Or a one hour version!!




Lyrics:
Set fire to your hair
Poke a stick at a grizzly bear
Eat medicines that's out of date
Use your private parts as piranha bait

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Get your toast out with a fork
Do your own electrical work
Teach yourself how to fly
Eat a two week old unrefrigerated pie

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Invite a psycho-killer inside
Scratch a drug dealer's brand new ride
Take your helmet off in outer space
Use your clothes dryer as a hiding place

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Keep a rattlesnake as pet
Sell both the kidneys on the internet
Eat a tube of superglue
"I wonder what's this red button do?"

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

Dress up like a moose during hunting season
Disturb a nest of wasps for no good reason
Stand on the edge of a train station platform
Drive around the boom gates at a level crossing
Run across the tracks between the platforms
They may not rhyme but they're quite possibly

The dumbest ways to die, so many dumb ways to die

And here I thought it was going to be one of the "creeper" ads they frequently show over here;



That is one of the tamer ones, but they do show people being hit at a crosswalk by a car in some commercials here.

Despite the funny vid, there has been a spate of people sneaking around level crossings and getting cleaned up by trains, especially in country areas here, so I guess this is just a way to get people's attention, a good way to do it IMO. I still got the damn song in my head 1/2 hour later....
