The story behind Operator Please's formation could have been a perfect plot for a teen movie. One talented misfit, annoyed at her high school's battle of the bands being won by the popular kids every year, rounds up four fellow talented misfits of differing ages. The five of them spend their lunch breaks practicing and forming friendships despite none of them previously knowing each other from a bar of soap. Just after the musical montage sequence they try on and then abandon the names Lego Head and A Rubix Cube before settling on Operator Please. At the film's climax they win the battle of the bands (first prize: a box of doughnuts) and then, in the unbelievable post-credits sequence, achieve fame, record deals, and world tours. It just happens to be true.
