By November 26, 2012February 25th, 2021Destroying Conventional Wisdom

This was a video created by the people over at the agency McCann Melbourne for the Melbourne Metro. In just a week or so since they published the video it has notched nearly 26 Million views.

Now be careful. If you watch this you may be humming it all day long. Also, please pay particular attention to the “Kidney Dance”, which is my favorite. I’m sure you’ll understand why.

The Social Networks Were Buzzing About It

It’s official. "Dumb Ways To Die: is a smash hit world wide!
