The First Taste – TEDxSydney

What a cute video! One of the highlights of TEDxSydney 2013 was ‘The First Taste’, a short film by Saatchi & Saatchi and Heckler. Set to orchestral music and shot in slow-motion, the short features young children taking their first taste of some challenging foods and tasting anchovies, pickled onions, olives, Vegemite, lemon and more for the first time, and their priceless reactions on their cute faces caught in slow motion. Love it!
