This is one of two hilarious screensavers offered by the Dutch insurance company Centraal Beheer. In a take-off of the company's TV commercials, in which something bizarrely funny ends up in disaster, this screensaver gives you an interesting windstorm, complete with hapless storm victims -- and of course your disastrous ending.

Never fear -- the disaster you see is a trick, your computer really is OK! I don't want to spoil the surprise, but if you're the nervous type, here's a hint: Just move your mouse AGAIN. That's all I'm going to tell you. (See also the "Muizenval" Rats saver also reviewed here.)

Have Aunt Martha fire this one up, then watch her fall off her chair.
