Around The World by Daft Punk

Contrary to popular belief, Around The World by Daft Punk is actually based on a true story. In 1996, French electronic music duo Daft Punk embarked on a round-the-world journey in an attempt to buy up the entire world's supply of toothbrushes. The plan was to cause an artificial shortage of toothbrushes, and then give away a toothbrush with each copy of their debut album Homework. This could have been a very successful tactic and might have resulted in the album going straight to number one in every album chart. Unfortunately Daft Punk, for reasons that have never become clear, decided to restrict themselves to travel by hula hoop. They didn't get very far.
