The Grim Reaper Goes All 'Sound of Music' in Chilling Unicef Spot

Unicef Sweden Spot Lists Death's 'Favorite Things' in Musical Rendition

Published on Apr 15, 2015

Editor's Pick

In this Unicef Sweden spot, "Death" sings about his favorite things -- easily preventable diseases -- in a "Sound of Music"-inspired ditty whose chilling words remind us of the heartbreaking things that can kill children in the developing world. As he cavorts on a mountain top with his scythe, he sings of how "vaccinations and medications....make me feel so sad" but the things that he loves include typhoid, dysentry and "flesh wounds without disinfectant." The ad ends with a reminder that water-borne diseases kill 1,000 children every day.
