AUSTRALIA'S DEADLIEST ANIMALS - SONG Lil Dicky - Freaky Friday feat. 2 days ago   03:01

Van Vuuren Bros
A song about all the wonderful things that Australia has to offer.

Written and Performed by Christiaan Van Vuuren.
Animated by Connor Van Vuuren.
Recorded and Mixed by Alex Mills at Song Zu.
Backing Track is 'Payday' by Jason Farnham:


In Australia we've got deadly animals a plenty.
We've got funnel web spiders who'll murder you and your family.
Under every second rock is a red back spider.
And they’ll kill ya just cause, I dunno, they're bored or whatever.

We got invisible brown snakes who'll bite you on the foot,
And you’ll be dead in seven minutes, like that, kaput.
We've got the world's deadliest creatures all over the place.
We've got magpies who'll steal the eyeballs from your face -

But at least we don't have AR-15's.

We've got great white sharks who'll ascend from the deep,
And rip ya in half with their razor sharp teeth.
We've got salt water crocs who'll death-roll you to death,
and sea-snakes who'll gladly snatch your last breath. 

We've got a blue ringed octopus no bigger than this,
that just sits around in rock pools waiting to kill kids.
And even the platypus, a cute beaver-duck thing,
has got a spur on it’s ankle that’ll kill ya in one sting. 

But at least we don't have AR-15's.
And at least they can't end up in the hands of psychopathic teens.

We've got stonefish and stingrays and sea-urchins and shit,
and hectic fucken homicidal box jellyfish,
and these Jellyfish they aren’t even sentient beings,
they don’t even really do stuff or know about things. 

They just float around on the whim of the currents,
being pointless non-cognitive murderous cunts.
And if that weren't enough in terms of natural hazards,
here in Australia the sun causes cancer.

But at least we don't have AR-15's.
And at least they can't end up in the hands of suicidal teens.
And at least we don't have an NRA, who pay millions of dollars every day, buying off politicians not to change old laws.

We got bull sharks, cone shells, salt water crocodiles.
Honey bees, european wasps, and blue ringed octopi's.
Death adders, blue bottles, red back spiders.
Tiger sharks, tiger snakes, and lizards that'll bite ya. 

We got Sea snakes, taipans, cassowaries, copperheads,
all the creatures of the land and sky and sea that want you dead.
Toadfish, stonefish, irukandgi jellyfish -
Bull ants, centipedes, and ticks that cause paralysis. 

But thank fuck we don't have AR-15's.
And thank fuck they can't end up in the hands psychopathic suicidal teens. And thank fuck we don't have an NRA, who pay millions of dollars every day, buying off politicians not to change some law. 

A law that was written 200 years ago,
in a time when it took three minutes to reload,
a single round of ammunition, and we knew nothing about depression,
and you couldn't fire 45 rounds in sixty seconds.

And there wasn't even such a thing as automatic weapons.
And there weren't thirty one mass-shootings monthly…
but what would I know cause I'm from another country.

Hey guys!

Some people have rightly pointed out that we got a few facts in the video wrong, or some things might be slightly exaggerated, so just wanted to clarify a few things:

- Funnel Web Spiders lack the dexterity and strength to carry knives, and there's never been a case of a Funnel Web killing an entire family.

- Blue Ringed Octopi don't just sit around in rock pools waiting to kill kids, they also do whatever else Octopi like to do.

- Red Back Spiders aren't under every second rock, and they don't bite you because they're bored, they probably do it because they're pissed off about some shit, or scared.

- Despite the fact that a Magpie will swoop the shit out of you, there's never been a case of a Magpie stealing the eyeball of a happy singing man. Also, Magpies don't have abs.

- Brown Snakes aren't invisible, they're just hard to see on brown ground or in brown leaves. I think brown ground is more commonly known as dirt.

- There's no evidence that sea snakes take pleasure in killing people.

- A platypus is not a beaver-duck thing, scientifically speaking.

- Stingrays don't wear Universal Solider style cyborg eye-pieces.

- Copperhead snakes don't wear reflective aviators.

- Box Jellyfish don't go to counselling and there's never been a single one charged for murder.

- Both Tiger Sharks and Tiger Snakes don't have actual tiger heads.

- Most Bull sharks don't have nose rings.

- There are no lizards with a mouth inside a mouth inside a mouth.

- Taipans don't look Thai, or any kind of Asian whatsoever.

- Irukandji Jellyfish are not actually made of dangerous radioactive material.

- Drop bears are a real hectic deadly thing that we forgot to include.

That about covers it.

Sorry, and thanks for understanding.

this song is so true we dont have guns so i will not walk out of my house and get shot in a heartbeat by trigger happy americans
Cody Horton
this is so catchy
wtf caniuse
We don't have the NRA, we have it's retarded younger brother the SSAA which uses exactly the same methods as the NRA to disrupt and influence politics and gun law. They are even funded by the NRA in some cases.

I dont even think the toughest american can handle australia.

Hilarious and (mostly) true, I am an American who lived in Sydney for 2 1/2 years and loved it! :-) But I am an American through & through, with all due respect to the Aussies, your country has become a nanny/surveillance state, U.S. is not far behind if we let the lefties have their way. ;-) You are constantly fed propaganda about the U.S., NRA, gun deaths, etc.
Ben Shapiro really puts the issue at rest here:
More great sources/articles to read & learn here:
and here:
These are just a few examples from reputable sources, possibly a different perspective for some and will hopefully (even if you don't agree) help you understand a different view that the mainstream media will not acknowledge or discuss. :-)

Although to be fair, the thing that's most likely to kill you in Australia is exposure :/ I'm a pretty seasoned hiker and have never had any issues with aussie wildlife.

Give a round of applause to Australians they got to put up with these animals like they can't go to the beach without being stung by a sea urchin
Also the sun causes cancer everywhere
Michael Clark
Horribly inaccurate, but still funny

That's right, because Australians prefer to murder their families than shoot up schools as often. Different strokes for aussie folks.
Bravo! Encapsulates everything I love about Australia, and everything I hate about America, all in one video. Great job!
While i love this song, both automatic weapons and 45 rounds in a minute had been done for ages 200 years agoo :b like it wasnt common and something u could just get ur hands obviously but it existed. *

still loved the song, murican gunlaws are crazy, my personal opinion is this. An adult should after a good probe be able to get a handgun. Very strict and proper anal probe. Everything else is just absurd for a civilian to be able to own, outside of hunters and their hunting rifles. But even then its somewhat like. Wouldnt hunting become cooler if knifes crossbows and bows were the only weapons legal for hunting purposes? Well and traps and fishing gear i guess. Man i just wanted to say a quick comment, then i felt i had to explain my perspective on the issue quickly so i wasnt misunderstood and here i am cramping up while eating with oen hand cause ive kept typing cointinously with the other and im just hating myself and all of u and i think i might go out and buy an ar 15
Sorry but you forgot the Plovers
As a dude from neither country mentioned in the video. To all the Americans saying: Yeah but the Aussies lost a war against Emu's (Which is pretty funny if you ask me)

Atleast they dont have people shooting up kindergartners, or black people, or white people, or people in general.
Americans: if it’s not guns that cause all the shootings, what is?

Jack Lane
That’s all correct being an Aussie.
