The Infinite House
Interesting, but I ddin't know the company before watching and I don't know anything more about it now. Perhaps it's more recognizable to our European friends.

Girl Effect: The Clock is Ticking
Love the message. Not as impressed with the production quality of this ad. A little concerned about Nike's reputation for taking advantage of child labor. It's tough to reconcile the good this project will do and the exposure on TED that will facilitate it with this incongruence.

The World’s Smallest Stop-motion Character Animation
Technologically amazing, aesthetically pleasing little story. However, if what has been posted about Nokia's complicity in perpetuating civil war in Congo is true, it's offensive that it did not cause TED to think again before electing to support it. Ads Worth Spreading should be reserved for companies worth promoting. no matter how novel or fascinating the film.

Target Kaleidoscopic Fashion Spectacular
Incredible production! Upbeat, creative, energetic and attractive to the Target market. Seems more like a documentary of the shared city experience than an ad. Very cool! Redeming social value? Notsomuch.

The Chase
Brilliantly entertaining and very well done! However, except for the fact of a female hero, not much of redeeming social value. Even though I've watched it many times, I can never remember what it's advertising.

Changing Our Future
The ad content is perfect. Wish the production quality was as good. Regarless, this is absolutely an Ad Worth Spreading.

Dulux Walls
Never thought I could be so inspired by housepaint! I like the simpliciy, powereful community message and overt yet inoffensive product placement. Kinda makes you wanna go and buy some paint - and I'm surprisingly okay with that.
