To mark Valentine’s Day, Dumb Ways to Die creator Julian Frost has created the short film Love Assassin.

Love Assassin sees Tuzki, a white rabbit, juggle a Valantine's Day romance with an assassination attempt.

This 'not-for-kid's short is available online globally including Turner Broadcasting’s [adult swim] platform in Australia.

“We’re thrilled to present the first-ever animated short film starring Tuzki,” said Yat Siu, board director of TurnOut Ventures and the founder and CEO of Outblaze.

“Today the uniquely bittersweet white bunny loved by millions officially expands into a new medium, and TurnOut Ventures renews our commitment to producing compelling original content.”

Writer and director Julian Frost is best known for the massively viral animated short film and mobile game Dumb Ways to Die.

Dumb Ways to Die started life as a safety campaign by Metro Trains in Melbourne, Australia but the short video has gone on to inspire a toy range set to launch this year.
