The Melbourne Metro System Reminds You, Adorably, Not to Get Run Over By a Train
Watch out PSY, the Melbourne Metro system just might beat your record for most YouTube views. A clever, animated clip called "Dumb Ways To Die" -- and its accompanying catchy tune -- has already topped 28 million in less than two weeks. It was made as a public service announcement to warn people about the potential danger of trains and it immediately went viral. Presumably targeted to kids, given its cute cartoons and even cuter music, the whole thing is, well... kinda dark. It's hard to imagine the MTA making an adorable video about train safety with cartoon characters gushing blood, etc., but, hey, maybe it's time to go back to the drawing board on those mad boring "If you see something, say something" ads. The clip has become so popular that it inspired Seattle-based video and animation studio Cinesaurus to create their own parody and tribute to NASA, "Cool Things To Find." Watch it, and see where missing socks go.
