This Video Is Every TED Talk Ever

Video: TED Talks were forever shamed by that skewering The Onion gave them a few years ago, but this commentary on what every TED Talk is like from CBC's This Is That is pretty perfect. It breaks down the things that every person does at one of these talks, including the structure of their speech, the repetition of phrases, the movements onstage, the specific cadence they use and the endless graphs they pummel into our brains. It starts a little slow, but then again, so does every TED Talk. My favourite line: "Let's look at the picture of the planet for no reason."


    The best example of a TedTalk I have ever seen was in the comedy Man Seeking Woman (from the episode Scythe), well worth the viewing.
