Metro Trains releases new Christmas themed Dumb Ways to Die charity single

Metro Trains is using its Dumb Ways to Die campaign to celebrate the festive season and to raise money for the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal with the release of a new Christmas themed song.

The tune, by original artist Tangerine Kitty is available to buy on iTunes with the money raised going to the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal, with the song’s message around being safe during the holiday period.

The song, which features the lyric “Don’t be dumb or you will perish” is being broadcast on local radio in Melbourne, and on train station platforms where commuters are being given branded packs of jellybeans.

This past year has seen Metro Trains use the campaign to mark a number of different occasions, from Valentine’s Day to April Fool’s and even the Running of the Bulls.

In October Metro Trains launched a second game based around the hugely awarded Dumb Ways to Die campaign.
