TED Talks are great - they make you feel a little bit smarter, you can post them on Facebook and say "You HAVE to watch this. Inspiring." to make yourself seem deep and knowledgeable, AND the speakers often aren't even named Ted (which is more confusing than great, actually, or maybe I just don't understand acronyms).

Regardless, if you've seen enough TED Talks, you're probably subconsciously familiar with all of the tropes associated with them - the way speakers gesticulate, the words they choose, and how goddamn pretentious the whole thing usually is.

Well, CollegeHumor's own Will Stephen decided to put his knowledge of TED Talks to the test by giving his own TED Talk...about nothing.
