This hilarious TED Talk by Charlie Todd focuses on the shared experience of absurdity. He wants to “cause a scene in a public place that is a positive experience for people,” and he claims his goal is to give people funny stories to tell (Source). My favorite was the Best Buy prank at about 6:00. I absolutely love that Todd addresses the naysayers at the end of his presentation.
TED Commandment #8: Thou shalt remember all the while: laughter is good.
