If you don’t wear ties, you probably know someone who does. Challenge yourself and/or them to do what I’m doing here by sporting an interesting, different kind of knot and liven up the drudgery of boring ties!
Neckties… such an irony. So formal, yet so banal. You wear it to show respect and be respectful of an event and/or group of people. Yet, you just grab one that, for the most part, looks like one anyone else grabbed off the same shelf. Lots of solids, stripes, mostly muted colour palette. However, if you go outside of this most generic of dress codes, you might be flagged for being disrespectful, attention attracting, and so on.
So what’s a man (or woman) to do with his ties so as knot to look so boring? (pun intended)
This is the final part of 3 posts showing all the ads TED deemed worth spreading. Please click on the links for Part 1 and Part 2.
The TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) community just released its 2011 Ads Worth Spreading contest winners, and the ads are better than the ones I have seen for the Super Bowl in any year! But what did you expect from a brilliant group who’s moniker is “Ideas Worth Spreading”?
These ads aren’t like those in the Super Bowl where they last 30-60 seconds. They tend to be much longer, often the full version of the ad rather than the truncated TV time version. However, with ads like these, I could watch commercials in place of TV shows because I don’t notice how long or short the ads were. I’m actually a little sad once it’s over, alongside whatever mood the commercials left me in.
I have posted the ads here because I have found higher quality versions of the ads than the ones available on the TED website. Otherwise, I’d have just linked to them all on TED’s site.
Enjoy and be prepared to be wowwed!!!
