People can be very foolish when it comes to giving their heart away, that's why the Dumb Ways to Valentine ad campaign is so endearingly clever. It marks the return of a couple of the Dumb Ways to Die cartoon characters, but this time they are distracted by upcoming romantic celebrations.
Conceived and created by McCann Melbourne, the Dumb Ways to Valentine ad campaign, which comes in the form of a soon-to-be viral video, centers around a blue guy who has already given up his kidney to an online bidder. Clearly unattached to his organs, it comes as no surprise when he rips out his heart for his crush only to fall down dead the next second. It ends reading, "Be safe around Valentine's Day and trains."
