Dumb Ways to Die Goes to the Movies

As a movie fanatic, anything related to movies would surely get my utmost attention.  I have seen and heard about this advertising campaign called Dumb Ways to Die a couple of years ago and was fascinated about it.  It was very successful indeed.  I just came about this parody recently and thought it would be a cool thing to share.  

This version is a spin-off from the original video.  It now focuses on dumb ways to die in movies.  The parody made mention of 21 movies namely:
  1. Jaws
  2. The Raiders of the Lost Ark
  3. Kill Bill
  4. Dr. Strangelove
  5. Prometheus
  6. Layer Cake
  7. Hellraiser
  8. Meet Joe Black
  9. 300
  10. The Ring
  11. Jurassic Park
  12. Iron Man
  13. Volcano
  14. Final Destination 2
  15. The Mist
  16. Starship Troopers
  17. Lord of the Rings - Return of the King
  18. Star Wars - Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
  19. Watchmen
  20. The Wizard of Oz
  21. Drive

The Dumb Ways to Die ad was conceived by advertising agency McCann Melbourne as a safety campaign for Metro Trains in Melbourne, Australia to promote rail safety and was successfully launched on November 2012.  It's aim is simple - to engage an audience or the general public that really doesn’t want to hear any kind of safety message but rather be drawn to the message itself through simple animation and an engaging and easy to remember jingle.

I hope you enjoyed it!
