Just when you thought the Internet’s Daft Punk sponge was well and truly soaked through, it seems there’s still space for a few extra drops of robot magic. A recent upload to the French duo’s YouTube Vevo channel seems to be the closest thing we’re going to get to a music video for Get Lucky.
Now, don’t hate us if this isn’t what you’re expecting, but trust us when we say it’s kinda worth it. Not only is the below clip the only official stream of the first single from Random Access Memories, it’s also likely to be the only official video we’re going to receive from Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo for some time.
Daft Punk say the latest album was inspired by pre-MTV era records, and that they want to return to “the spirit of the great spectacle of giant billboards on Sunset Boulevard”, hence this ‘unconventional’ YouTube offering.
It’s not worth spoiling the surprise in the clip for you. All we can say is, although you probably won’t be seeing this on Rage any time soon, stick with it and you’ll get a nice little treat.
