Role In The Game

Sad Phoney

Phoney is about to be worried.

He is seen in the Dumb Ways to Die app, in the Mind the Gap minigame, where three of him are about to board a train - the player taps anywhere on the screen to make him jump. Moreover, he is the minor character of Dumb Ways To Die. He didn't appear in the music video, but he appears in the minigame. But actually, he dies because of the epilepsy. Epilepsy is Phoney's cause of death. His mother, his aunt, and his sister died too. Dimwit, the mother of Phoney had rheumatic heart disease, his aunt, the aunt of Phoney had cardial heart disease, and Dummkopf, the sister of Phoney had coronary heart disease. But, Knucklehead, the father of Phoney is still alive. Dimwit, Dummkopf, Knucklehead, and his unnamed aunt are the family of Phoney. In the game, his father left him.
