The Onion Announces Hilarious Fake App in Ted Talk Parody Video

Apps are so ubiquitous, even The Onion is getting in on the parody play. In video below, The Onion showcases another parody video of the popular Ted Talk programming, where the show star announces an app that does absolutely nothing in particular. It’s so good, because we like to have a good laugh. Also, we like to think that not all apps have to be serious – but for the most part, they are primarily driven by the same kind of PR styled video that makes them seem a little too self-important. Don’t you think?
