**Abstract:** A recent DriveTime commercial features a mathematician at a blackboard supposedly solving "Carmichael's totient conjecture". This is a real problem concerning Euler's $\phi$-function, and remains unsolved, despite the claim made in the ad. We will describe the history of the conjecture and what has been done to try to solve it.
