Ever wondered where all of those elePHPants [some images nsfw] came from? Well, Vincent Pontier has created a movie showing how he came up with the initial idea.
El Roubio presents the film "Birth of the ElePHPant" made a day in the year 1998 has just been published. Why the elephant? Everyone loves the animal and its is powerful but at the same time flexible. It's fast when it attacks (databases) and it fits with the PHP name (elePHPants).
You can find more pictures of these blue globe-trotting ambassadors of PHP in this group on Flickr.
