October 17, 2012, 3:16 PM — The folks over at The Onion have started a new video series that parodies the TED videos that surely you must have seen (if you follow technology, there are practically 1 billion TED videos floating around).
In the first episode of "Onion Talks", we meet a visionary media leader who wants to turn compost into fuel for cars. All he needs is some people to implement his great vision.
This is brilliant - it's about time someone poked fun at TED. The dark stage, the giant Onion logo prop, the big green circle - it all works so well.
