Dumb Ways to Die

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Film Advertising Crafts / Use of Music for Film Advertising / 2013

So we wrote a song called ‘Dumb Ways to Die’, created a music video for it and attributed it to an artist that didn’t exist: Tangerine Kitty. We uploaded the video onto YouTube and the song onto iTunes. We pushed the music video on MTV, in cinema, through outdoor and at stations. Within a week it had been viewed 20 million times and covered on every news service in Australia. The song sold over 77,000 copies and charted in 28 countries.
