“Dumb Ways to Die” is a public service announcement campaign by Metro Trains in Melbourne, Australia to promote rail safety. The video went viral on the Internet as it is so morbidly cute and funny. You rarely see such a brilliant video from a government agency. 😀
I have been hoping that someone will make a LEGO version of “Dumb Ways to Die” so I have an excuse sharing it with you here in case you haven’t seen it yet. I was super happy went flickr member Ninja_Nin created a LEGO Star Wars version of the various vignettes from the video.
The first two LEGO Star Wars vignettes feature the first two lines of the first verse: “Set fire to your hair – Poke a stick at a grizzly bear”. I particularly like Luke poking at the Wampa.
The second two LEGO Star Wars vignettes feature the second two lines of the first verse: “Eat medicine that’s out of date – Use your private parts as piranha bait”. I think Jar Jar is just about to get himself in big doo-doo!
The third two LEGO Star Wars vignettes feature the first two lines of the second verse: “Get your toast out with a fork – Do your own electrical work”. Love the little workshop Anakin is working at!
The last two LEGO Star Wars vignettes feature the second two lines of the second verse: “Teach yourself how to fly – Eat a two week old unrefrigerated pie.” So now you know why Yoda is green! 🙄
Unfortunately the last two verses haven’t been LEGO-ized yet, so if you are up to it you can do them yourself. What do you think? How do you like the LEGO version of this catchy song? Which one is your favorite LEGO Star Wars vignette? Share your comments below! And remember to be safe around trains! 😉
