Dumb Ways To Die – this video will have you humming the catchy tune all day. Have a great friday y’all!

Ever set fire to your hair? Or, better yet, sell both your kidneys online? Hopefully not — those are really bad ideas.

A PSA by the Melbourne Metro highlights those mishaps, among others, in an animated sing-along.

The video, called “Dumb Ways to Die,” is part of a campaign to help prevent train-related deaths in the state of Victoria, Australia — a region that suffers from an alarmingly high number of train accidents each year. The overall message: be smart, be safe.

The morbidly cheery (or cheerily morbid?) video follows a cast of naive cartoons as they meet their unfortunate demises until, eventually, the whole gang — now dead — lines up and sings the chorus in unison. It’s infectiously catchy.

Take a look for yourself. Is this an effective campaign? What other creative campaigns have used humor to relay a darker, more serious message? Tell us below.

Madison Ashby - August 9, 2017

These six people had funerals on their mind for one reason or another and decided to share with the Twitter world what they were thinking, and I’m pretty glad they did. People can come up with some pretty crazy things if you let them ramble.
