A History of Daft Punk in Commercials
News broke this week that a new Daft Punk album definitely possibly may drop this spring. Normally new albums bring new tours, but so far all we have is a Daft-free Coachella (despite faint rumors to the contrary) and expert proclamations that the French dance duo is likely not showing up in your town at any point in 2013. As a consolation, we offer up this set of less conventional Daft Punk performances, a reminder that electronic pyramids aren’t built in a day, but they are built by taking money from people in exchange for them putting your songs in a commercial.
A far cry from the high fashion of Hedi Slimane, Daft Punk go full (relaxed) denim on denim in this Gap commercial featuring Juliette Lewis getting down to the duo’s “Digital Love” in flares and a jaunty hat that reminds you this was filmed in 2001.
