Should have called it "The Herd Shot Around the World"

Bad puns aside, it'd be fun to see a video like this for implemented rockets comparing their actual performance to what was promised in the concept phase. Maybe also include armored cars, each loaded with $10,000,000, representing the launch/operating costs.
