Trains are dangerous things. And if you’re not careful around them, you could end up dying in the dumbest way possible.
That’s the message behind a new ad campaign for Melbourne, Australia’s Metro Trains. They’ve tapped a local artist to record a catchy little tune and set it too the cutest little death animations you’ll ever see. The result is “Dumb Way to Die.” Check out the video and be prepared, it will get stuck in your head.
Perhaps the most ridiculous yet fantastic and halarious piece of 8-bit advergame madness I’ve seen this year, is this piece from Old Spice called ‘Dikembe Mutombo’s 4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World’ game which starts on YouTube and is played out on a microsite here. Weirdly, the entire thing is tied into a live streaming countdown of a machine carving out an ancient Mayan ring!
