Dumb Ways To Die Now Covers Rio De Janeiro

You know about all the dumb ways to die around Melbourne public transport, but what about if you're going to Rio? A YouTuber has put together a parody of the award-winning safety campaign to tell people all the dumb ways they'll die in Rio.

Basically, going to Rio is a dumb way to die. You can be carjacked and stabbed, electrocuted in flooded waters, suffocate on the subway or hit by a crazy bus. It doesn't sound like a particularly safe place, but this video is still as adorable as the last one.

Honestly, I think this could be a new tourism campaign by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade: forget the SmartTraveller website, just start telling people all the ways they could die in different overseas destinations. Nothing like a viral safety message, after all.

The Dumb Ways To Die campaign won a swathe of awards and has now been watched over 52 million times on YouTube.

Here's the original for some fun:
