Fatboy Slim and Chemical X are both lovers of the original Smiley, designed by Harvey Ross Ball and donated to the world for free, then appropriated by Franklin Loufrani for financial gain.

Fatboy Slim has been a phenomenally successful musician, producer and DJ for the last 25 years. He has headlined at pretty much every major festival worth attending. His iconic tracks ‘Praise You’ and ‘Right Here, Right Now’ are as ubiquitous a feature of popular culture today as they were 20 years ago. He continues to be a massive draw on any DJ line-up around the world.
