The training video tone is perfect. I see that there are a number of "Klaus" programs available; is this just a funny but real safety fil, or a perfect parody?

My family lived near a railyard when I was growing up, and the rail line distributed bloodthirsty little comics to warn us off the tracks. They were full of kids getting their foot caught in a switch as the boxcar bore down on them, or hitting a railroad torpedo (essentially a big noisemaking black poweder cap) with a rock and putting their eye out. We loved them.
