Adorable – Dumb Ways to Die

Apparently this ad comes from Australia for Metro Trains Melbourne and the song is the handiwork of Tangerine Kitty. It’s like if you took away the shock value of Happy Tree Friends and just made it adorable. And it’s even informative!

Animation – Digital Zelda

A single-take digital animation paying homage to the Hero of Time Link and his favorite pastime, saving Zelda. Even though this is designed on mostly Macs, it’s still pretty spiffy.

Trashed Idea – Fotoplayer

This rivals the cat piano for best instrument. Apparently these were used during the silent film era for music and sound effects.

Coming to an end

Trashed Ideas will be closing shop June 6th. Mainly because I’m too cheap to renew web-hosting, and also because while I do catch an awesome video that I share every now and then, the traffic has been dying down and and I don’t put as much time into this as I would like in order to maintain it. So I will be posting a ton these next few days, a lot of back-logged awesome. Hopefully you get to see it, otherwise you can catch it on FB.

Viral – Spandy Andy
