Over 28,000 rubber duckies fell overboard on their way from Japan to the United States. Imagine thousands of rubber ducks floating on the ocean. Many of them have since washed up on the shores of Hawaii, Alaska, South America, Australia and the Pacific Northwest.

Now imagine thousands of rubber ducks churning around and around in a whirlpool of water for over 20 years.
