Dumb Ways to Die Cannes — A public service campaign with an unusual "Dumb Ways to Die" theme won two of the four top honors on the first awards day at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The safety campaign for Metro Trains in Melbourne features animated blobs that die in very odd ways, such as swimming with piranhas or poking a bear with a stick. The campaign message: Of all the stupid ways to die, acting unsafely around trains is the most insane.

It was created by advertising firm McCann Melbourne and won the Grand Prix award in both the public relations and direct marketing categories. It was also a top contender for the Grand Prix in the promotional and activation category — ads that spur people to action. It missed out on that top award but won a gold Lion, as the trophies are called. Dumb Ways to Die is "fun, engaging" and "a clear winner," said David Gallagher, CEO of Ketchum Europe and president of the PR Jury.

As for the Dumb Ways to Die campaign, it not only resonated with festival judges, it also has been well received by audiences across the world since it launched in November with a three-minute video. The YouTube video has reaped nearly 50 million views. Its catchy "Dumb Ways to Die" jingle is popular on iTunes, kids sing it in school and guitar players post their versions on YouTube. The campaign "captured the attention of the

world,“ said Mark Tutssel, worldwide chief creative officer at ad firm Leo Burnett, who is president of the direct marketing jury. Rail-related accidents were down 20% after the first three months of the campaign, McCann says. About a million people have clicked a button on DumbWaysToDie.com that says they agreed to this pledge: "I solemnly swear not to do dumb stuff around trains."
