“Ads Worth Spreading” offers a great example of just how much the idea of advertising has evolved. Messages must be original and designed to trigger emotions, inspire and encourage sharing.

Via the YouTube Blog: Last year, TED kicked off a challenge to the advertising industry called Ads Worth Spreading, our global search for innovation, ingenuity and intelligence in advertising.
