a.k.a. TED Talks

He's that person who doesn’t realize the type of grand gestures that look like devotion in the movies are actually super-creepy when performed IRL. Like when Ben Stiller’s character in “There’s Something About Mary” goes to extreme lengths to track down his high school crush years later. For example, "I broke up with Dan, and then he showed up at the airport, where he professed his love through a flash mob and everyone watching started chanting 'Take him back! Take him back!' I left immediately, talk about Ted."

TED can also refer to "TED Talks" (Technology, Entertainment, Design) in which TED Conferences post talks online for free distribution under the slogan "ideas worth spreading." TED was conceived by Richard Saul Wurman in February 1984 and has been held annually since 1990.
