I love TED Talks. I especially love to collect and binge-watch them when I am traveling. If you are unfamiliar with what a TED Talk is, they are short (less than 20 minutes) presentations about topics on Technology, Entertainment and Design. One of my favorite talks is about flags by Roman Mars which absolutely embarrasses the city of Milwaukee’s flag and has recently spawned a competition for a flag redesign.
The real reason for this post is that I have always thought about what I could talk about If ever given the opportunity to present a TED Talk. I have yet to come up with a topic . . .
What I have come across thanks to a colleague are numerous parody videos on how to mimic a TED Talk. There is definitely a recipe for the video and presentation style that even the Onion caught. Enjoy!
I found this video online about a replica model of Hamburg, Germany’s airport. This display is part of the Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg display which features the world’s longest model railroad setup, a cruise ship port, space shuttle launch and this model airport just to name a few things. The airport features 15,000 figures, 6,000 trees, 4,500 cars, 40,000 miniature LED lights and up to 45 planes that taxi to and from runways after takeoff and landing which uses a pole system under the runways to simulate the action of flight. Should I ever get the chance to travel to Europe and in particular, Hamburg, Germany, this will be on my list of stops to make.
I am not much of a cat video fan, but this got my attention. Thanks to John St. in Toronto for making this video!
Ah, hackers. This machine is designed to turn itself off once turned on . . . Simple enough; but one enterprising hacker took it a bit further and made it so it would have a fit. Enjoy the World’s Most Useless Machine!
The creative team at Jib Jab is at it again and now you can insert your photo into the creation to send to friends with Elf Yourself. Have a great time sending it to everyone you know as a little pre-holiday cheer!
This morning a co-worker of mine sent me this classic Charlie Brown remake depicting ad agency life. Being an ex-agency art director, I can most certainly attest that much, if not all of this is true! Please enjoy this special presentation of A Charlie Brown Ad Agency!
