Learn French With Dumb Ways to Die

You probably know this adorable and funny video called Dumb Ways to Die. It came out as a commercial that promoted safety on train stations in Melbourne. It has been so humorous and catchy that soon became viral. Since 2012 when it has been realised many videos and several games came out under the same catchy name. The main message of the commercial is that we should be careful around trains, simply because it would be a very dumb way to die!

Enjoy the song and look through the French translation of lyrics!
