TED has become an innovative platform for individuals to share their ideas, and it's clear in the clip above those ideas expand beyond your typical marketing pitch.

During TEDxSydney this past May, Australian beatboxer Tom Thum put on an epic performance for attendees at the Sydney Opera House.

Watch, and be amazed.
