Crash Test Dummy

Hey, this is my 2nd submission...first one kinda fizzled out, I hope this will be more to your collective liking...

The idea is a simple play on words : Crash test dummy, here in South Africa, and hopefully elsewhere, the word dummy also means 'pacifier'. Get it?

All comments welcome!

Watch this

I like this, but I have a few points.
First, I couldn't really tell it was a dummy. The gap between the wall and the dummy is too far, meaning I can't tell what is going on.

But that aside, great idea.


Hey thanks for the crit...

at first I just had the dummy in the corner, and I then felt it needed more-hence, the wall. And the distance is really just to make for a semi-realistic perspective. Maybe it's just me.

But thanks again Espoz


I don't believe we call them 'dummies' here in the U.S.

I could be out of the loop though.


Thanks landosamorm for the update on the U.S. front! Just to be sure, before I submitted I google imaged searched the word 'dummy', and some pics were of pacifiers, and some from .com sites... so hopefully somewhere in the U.S. ppl know of what I speak :)

thanks again


Once there was a kid who
Got into an accident and couldn’t come to school
But when he finally came back
His hair had turned from black into bright white
He said that it was from when
The cars had smashed him so hard

Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm

Once there was this girl who
Wouldn’t go and change with the girls in the change room
But when they finally made her
They saw bithmarks all over her body
She couldn’t quite explain it
They’d always just been there

Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm

But both the girl and boy were glad
’cause one kid had it worse that that

’cause then there was this boy whose
Parents made him come directly home right after school
And when they went to church
They shook and lurched all over the church floor
He couldn’r quite explain
They’d always just gone there

Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm


Nice phones, hope you liked the shirt as well :)

I love that song, Thanks


Its like the impact wall and speed-guage wall of a crash test centre...
hope that helps...


excellent idea, i love it, but seriously lose the wall, the dummy says it all (mmm irony).

The wall would honestly put me off buying this


looks like a pacifier to me


I didn't see that it was a pacifier... I hear alot of americans call pacifiers "noonies" or "nunus"

I dunno!


americans also call them binkys


I agree with SEVENHUNDRED... the dummy says it all! i dont think the wall is necessary. But if you are keeping the wall, bring the dummy closer to it :)


I thought it was a gas mask. Doesn't quite work!


it looks like a gas mask. i love it anyways.


Thanks joshammon, that's an...interesting take on it. And hey, if it makes you wanna buy the shirt I won't stop you =)
