The makers of “Cool Things to Find” really know the Internet. Curiosity Rover, check. Twinkies, check. A cat, check. Daleks, check. Nixon jokes, check. Half-Life 3, Richard Nixon, EVE from Wall-E … it’s all happening.

Bonus points Curiosity killing the cat at :40.

The well-crafted video is a parody of “Dumb Ways to Die,” Melbourne railway operator Metro’s attempt to get citizens to be safer around trains. It’s a dark-yet-catchy jingle, built with funny animation and a Feist sound-alike.

There’s now a Cool Things to Find Tumblr page, natch, and you can download the catchy song here. Well done.
