“Cool Things to Find” by Seattle-based Cinesaurus is a cute parody of “Dumb Ways to Die”, the animated PSA by Metro Trains in Melbourne, Australia to help stop train-related deaths. In “Cool Things,” the rover Curiosity is the star and the piece imagines all the interesting things that it might find on Mars. They have also set up a “Cool Things to Find” Tumblr blog.
Why did we make this video?
Well, first off, we here at Cinesaurus really love Dumb Ways to Die. Second, we are huge fans of NASA and everything they are doing here on Earth, in Space and on Mars. We like to do anything we can to help support NASA and think you should too! Write to your Senator, call them, make sure they don’t cut any more of their budget.
