If You Don’t Stay In School In Australia, You Will End Up In A Horror Film And Die

Which is actually one of the least terrifying ways to die in Australia.


Educational ads usually say, “stay in school or else you’ll be unemployed and sad all the time,” though that’s also applicable to most university grads I know. In Australia, though, they’re not satisfied with vague threats about your career and your future; oh no, they want you to know that if you drop out of school, you will die a horrible death.

In this commercial for Australia’s Learn for Life Foundation, obvious horror-fan filmmakers Henry Inglis and Aaron McCann demonstrate the most intense of consequences for slacking off and skipping class. It’s a pretty cute video – until it gets real. Stay in school, kids!
