Laser Fact: It is rumoured that the evil villain in the Lord of the Cylinder series was originally supposed to have a hideout in a candy shop that hosted regular laser-light shows. The plot was changed after a singer, One Rand, released a song called “Candy shop”, and then claimed the rights to every candy store the world over.
