Green Room

Finally: The (unofficial) Darwin Awards theme song

“Isn’t it early in the day for a palate cleanser, AP?” Not during Thanksgiving week, pal. And if you think the news is slow today, just wait until Wednesday.

Believe it or not, this is a PSA for Australian Metro. It’s gone mega-viral in just five days — 7.5 million YouTube views as I write this, some 400,000 of which have come in just the past few hours. Feels like a cross between “Schoolhouse Rock” and “The Gashlycrumb Tinies.” Dying gruesomely through absentminded negligence has never been so adorable.

Fair warning: This song will be in your head for the rest of the day, and maybe beyond. Earworm crossing, dead ahead. (No pun intended.)
