Valentine’s Day is a dumb day to die

Dumb Ways to Die. Dumb Ways to Valentine.

Dumb Ways to Die, the most awarded campaign ever, now has a cute special for Valentine’s Day.
The original video from November 2012 has reached a whopping 71.5 million views on YouTube. That will not happen with this Valentine’s Day special. Still, the cuteness level is very high again.

Dumb Ways to Die. Dumb Ways to Valentine.
