Video: “Cool Things to Find,” a Parody of “Dumb Ways to Die”

We’ve been obsessed with the viral video, “Dumb Ways to Die”, since we wrote about it a couple weeks ago here on Surviving College. This sort of thing cannot go viral without a string of parodies to follow. And guess what? There is one! Cinesaurus, a Seattle-based creative team who loves to support education, science, and exploration, made their own parody of the awesome cartoon — this time, with the title, “Cool Things to Find!” This space-themed spin-off follows the Curiosity rover as she drives around Mars, picking up all of Earth’s lost treasures, like the Twinkie — and even uncovers some of the world’s greatest mysteries. (So there’s where those missing socks went!) They even feature a throwback to Richard Nixon and sneak in a reference to WALL-E (love it!). Singer Cara Peacock provides the voice for the quirky lyrics.

Check out the video below!

Similar to the video they were inspired by, Cinesaurus also launched a tumblr account featuring GIFs of some awesome scenes in the video. We’ve rounded up our favorites!

An excellent parody, if we do say so ourselves.
