A TED talk parody from This is That

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) has a satirical program called This is That which is:

“...a current affairs program that doesn't just talk about the issues, it fabricates them.”

In June they posted a 4-1/4 minute parody of a TED talk by Pat Kelly titled ‘Thought Leader’ gives talk that will inspire your thoughts. I ran across the CBC version of it yesterday in a post on the SlideMagic blog by Jan Schultink. 

This is That has other YouTube videos of their deadpan parodies, such as First there was the Driverless Car, Now there is a Riderless Bike, Artisanal Firewood (hand rubbed with ginger) and Canada rolls out a universal car horn language.

They also have audios like Ontario busted for ‘staging’ provincial parks to make them more Instagrammable which also has a segment about a Kelowna policeman told to quit patrolling on a unicycle.
