Social Media, the Onion Parody — “And Remember, Any Teenager Could Have Done What We Did”

Ah, the Onion — our era’s greatest source of daily sense through parody. In this excellent video parody of TED Talks, a social media guru takes us on a wonderful intellectual journey . . . on how if you look like you’re doing work, people will pay you for it.

Hat tip to DC for the link.

Happy Friday!
