This has been online for so long and is so funny that it’s hard to believe that no one has sent me a link to it before. Perhaps this is because it’s a German health and safety video and, for the first minute or so, is exactly as entertaining as that description suggests. But it gradually turns into a comedy gorefest to rival Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

There’s a novel I read recently (cannot for the life of me remember the name and, no, I’m not about to go trawling through the bookshelves) where the two main characters are ‘elfn’safety officers who do their best to dig out these sorts of films to show to their classes. Take bets on who will be first to faint or vomit etc.
If anyone else remembers it (last decade, English comic novel) remind me of the title will you?
It’s quite famous actually, and is frequently quoted as one of the more amusing short films made in recent years. It’s also used as a real training video by some companies, allegedly.
Who says those Germans don’t have a sense of humour?
[…] am reminded of this video which Pootergeek brought to my attention last […]
