1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Waste Dead", Way to Die #135, is the fifth death featured in "It's a Dead, Dead, Dead World", which aired on July 15, 2012.


Chris is a midget who is obsessed with the internet sensation known as planking (where a person lies face down in various places). Chris has his stripper girlfriend take photos of him planking in various places at a local playground. As well as a bench and annoy a homeless person sleeping (Only shown in the German version). His girlfriend is a camerawoman. Then, when a pissed off soccer mom with a kid tries to take back the playground, he tells her to go away in a form of abuse. He comes across a seesaw and attempts to plank on it, little did they know, when an airplane passed over them, a piece of "blue-ice" (A solid mixture of sewage and disinfectant) dropped from the plane and landed on the other side of the seesaw, launching him high into the air with only the top of the swing set crossbar to break his fall. Landing on the crossbar breaks his ribs and punctures his heart and lungs, causing him to die from massive internal bleeding. His girlfriend is left terrified.
