My old friend and colleague Tracey the Waitress Goddess sent me the following industrial safety video, and it is one for the books. It reminds me of something Monty Python would have come up with during their Sam Peckinpah period.

And as if the content weren't dire enough, that song is enough to make you want to slash your wrists with a twisted sardine can lid.

This is the greatest thing I've ever seen! I felt like I was watching a grindhouse Final Destination. Every scream and explosion almost made me piss my pants. I swear I wish I owned a factory just so I could watch people get hurt all day!

You mean this ISN'T a preview for "Final Destination: The Final Chapter -- Doom of the Working Class" ?

Or maybe "Saw 10" ?

This song is stuck in my head. STUCK IN MY HEAD AND IT WONT GO AWAY!!!

If you do a search on YouTube for "safety video" you'll find some other "safety" videos this company produced. They're hysterical.

One of them even has an Elaine Benes Seinfeld knock-off in it and of course she's doing herself some bodily harm.

One of my favorite scenes features the top breaking off a welding tank which then proceeds to launch like a rocket through a wall and into some poor schmuck's face who is minding his own business trying to eat lunch.
