I need a TED icebreaker video! How do I get someone hooked?

I strongly feel like exposing high school and college students could really change our future, because we are the future. I find, however, showing someone a video with someone talking about statistics or dependence on oil doesn't particularly peak the interest of most of my fellow students. I need a talk that is exciting or up-beat or something! I want to get my generation's foot in the TED door. Maybe we can start spreading all of these "ideas worth spreading"!

    May 27 2012: Great idea !

    Very difficult to pick one from so many but my suggestion would be about The Venus Project by Jaque Fresco.

    It surely would stimulate young minds creativity and will give hope for a future where the Resouce-Based-Economy model is of the essence.

    I haven't looked at the one by Sir Ken Robinson that says schools kill creativity but i feel it goes hand in hand with what my suggestion is.
