All time favourite

Come to Australia, you might accidentally get killed! The song is “Deadly Animals”, by Australian comedy musical duo The Scared Weird Little Guys (aka the Scaredies), and it’s all over the Intertubes (my second cousin just posted it to us all on Facebook). I remember I was still living in Old South Wales the first time I heard this song (from a spot recorded for Live at Jongleurs).

Video editing by Drizella:

Lyrics:

Redback, Funnel-Web, Blue-ringed octopus
Taipan, Tigersnake and a Box jellyfish
Stonefish and the poison thing that lives in a shell
That spikes you when you pick it up

Come to Australia
You might accidentally get killed

Your life’s constantly under threat
Have you been bitten yet?
You’ve only got three minutes left
Before a massive coronary breakdown

Redback, Funnel-Web, Blue-ringed octopus
Tiapan, Tigersnake and a Box jellyfish
Big shark just waiting for you to go swimming
At Bondi Beach

Come to Australia
You might accidentally get killed
Your blood is bound to be spilled
With fear your pants will be filled
Because you might accidentally get killed

Here’s a few other attempts at animating it: thurky8, flammatus, eripro, Kruizinby. They all have some high points, but Drizella’s effort is the best put together.
