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 29 2012: You might want to check one of Brajke Ingels's talks. They are fascinating, to say the least. Also, the guy is ridicoulously fun to listen to, so my choice would go on one of these.

    edit: I just noticed someone already reccomended it, so it's not just my impression of him.
