Editor's Pick

We haven't seen the last of Melbourne Metro Trains' "Dumb Ways to Die" characters. The morbidly cute critters are back on the scene, appearing in outdoor ads and train wraps to wish commuters a happy -- and safe -- holiday season. According to Marketing Manager Chloe Alsop, Metro has created posters, postcards and wrapped a six-carriage train in "very Aussie" style holiday-themed decor -- the characters aren't sipping cocoa by the fire. Rather they're barbecuing and frolicking (in Santa gear) on the beach.
