1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Killer Tan", Way to Die #263, is the seventh and final death featured in "It's a Dead, Dead, Dead World", which aired on July 15, 2012.


Fredo and Allie B are two tanning-obsessed guidos. As part of a Friday night ritual, they meet at Allie's tanning salon before a wild night out. The two start off by spray tanning each other, but Fredo wants to be darker. Allie then reveals a stand-in spray tanning booth. The two begin to tan again, but Fredo wants to be darker but insists on having his cigarettes first. When they get inside the booth, Allie B struggles to light up the lighter, but she manages to do so, the spark from the lighter ignites the DHA fumes in the booth, creating a fireball, and the explosion kills them both by burning their entire bodies, nose, throat and lungs.
