Educational videos have their place in the work place. Most of are god awful and boring. However, this video from Australia, released by Melbroune Metro Trains, incorporates cartoon characters and death - yet makes it funny.

"Dumb Ways To Die" was written by Melbroune local group Tangerine Kitty, who say they "weren't surprise" by how successful the video and song have been, reaching 11 million views on YouTube in the week since it was posted. Metro Trains tells Courier Mail they tested the video on family and friends, from the response they knew the campaign would be a success.
