Idea Spreading nonprofit conference TED have released their ten top advertising clips which offer viewers ‘pleasurable, intelligent engagement’.


In an attempt to battle the increasingly aggressive and somewhat invasive attention-grabbing efforts of online advertisers, TED launched the ‘Ads Worth Spreading‘ in late December 2010.  The initiative sought advertising which captured the imagination of audiences in a similar manner to the actual talks conducted by TED; ‘they should make you think, make you respond, make you want to share.’

Twenty-four judges have curated their ten top picks so far, including an incredible ‘Selinah’ entry from Ogilvy Johannesburg for The Topsy Foundation.
