From Rap Star Cooking Channels to Parody Political Ads

These examples of teen-centric programming range from rap star cooking channels to parody political ads that poke fun at election candidates by referencing popular Internet memes. In addition to a handful of empowering programming examples -- while Project Everyone's viral 'Wannabe' video remake recreates the popular Spice Girls hit with an equality-themed message, Hijup.com's inspiring campaign encourages Muslim girls to wear their hijabs with pride.

Other notable examples of teen-centric programming include Spanish-language beauty channels and humorous six-second commercials that imitate the format of successful social media channels like Vine and Snapchat.

Additional standouts range from app-filtered duet videos like Ariana Grande's fun clip alongside late night host Jimmy Fallon and honest acne commercials like Clearasil's clever ad that chronicles how hard it is for brands to relate to teens.
