Coupe de Boule

Zizou's headbutt has apparently inspired a new dance hit. In an effort to raise France's spirits in the wake of an ignominious World Cup defeat, three associates at Plage Records, a small label that specialises in ad music, wrote a Caribbean zouk-influenced dance track and posted it on the 'net. Since then the song has gotten heavy airplay on the French radio station, SkyRock, as well as inciting a rights battle between record labels and ringtone sellers.
The chorus can be heard in dance clubs across Europe: "Zidane, il a tape" (Zidane, the hit man). The title -Coupe de Boule- is French for headbutt.
Check out the track for yourself:
