What Daft Punk Should Wear To The VMAs

what daft punk should wear to the mtv vmas

The secret is out. by now, everybody knows Daft Punk is playing the MTV VMAs this weekend. Yay! That’s great. “Get Lucky” is one of the best songs of the summer. But let’s face it, their mysterious-dudes-in-helmets thing is getting a bit old. We all know that there are two middle aged French dudes under those motorcycle helmet visors — Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. And this is the VMAs, an event where Tim Connerford from Rage Against the Machine rushed the stage and climbed a piece of the set. Where Madonna kissed Britney. Where Busta Rhymes and Martha Stewart could fully express their love for one another.

If Daft Punk really wants to surprise us, they’ve got to step it up a notch.

Which is why we suggest they change up their helmet game, like so:

Just in case it’s not enough to listen to “Get Lucky” on repeat while you get down to business in the bedroom, it appears that you can now protect yourself from pregnancy and STDs with Daft Punk-themed condoms. These boxes of “Get Lucky” condoms were produced by Durex UK and apparently sent out as a gift to some prominent DJs. No word on whether they’ll ever be available to the public, but in any case, it’s a good reminder that whenever you’re up all night to get some, use protection! [Laughing Squid]

Watch This: Celine Dion Gets Down To Daft Punk (Well, Kinda)

Celine Dion Dancing
Celine's up all night to get lucky!

God, I love the internet. Some brilliant person out in the world took footage of Celine Dion rocking out at one of her French concerts and swapped out the audio for Daft Punk’s new hit single, “Get Lucky.” You will not believe how perfectly they match up. Also, if you’ve never seen Celine dance, well, prepare to be amazed. [YouTube via Gawker]

Be My Boyfriend: George Barnett, A One-Man Cover Song Machine

"We're up all night to get lucky."

I’m not gonna lie, I find myself a little bit creepy for liking 19-year-old Brit musician George Barnett so much. I mean, I don’t like him quite as creepily as say, Nicholas Hoult. But he’s up there. Consider this cover he did of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” (yup, still obsessed with this song — their album Random Access Memories is out May 21). He plays all the instruments, and produces a pitch perfect cover it. It’s kind of great, too, because he deconstructs the song down to its component parts, and shows you a bit of how something like this comes together (I mean, minus Daft Punk’s helmets, of course). George has posted more than 20 videos of different covers — somehow he made me actually like a Lana Del Ray song, he’s that good. This guy is going to be mega-famous one day, so take a listen and a look and enjoy. [YouTube]

Got An Earworm?

Earworms. That’s what super catchy songs are sometimes referred to, because they burrow deep in your psyche and don’t let go. They become the soundtrack to whatever you’re doing — eating, shopping, working — and basically take over any spare brain space. Daft Punk’s new single “Get Lucky” is one of those earwormy tracks — an endlessly repeating riff featuring vocals from uber-charming Pharrell. The full length album, Random Access Memories, won’t be out in the states until May 21, but writer Alex Bailey deftly explains just what makes “Get Lucky” so compelling. Keep reading »

Top Five Robo-Lovers

The Times U.K. just released its awesomely nerdy list of the “50 Best Movie Robots”. As we geeked out and combed through the nominations, we found our human senses drooling. Sure, a bunch of them are programmed to kill, but they’re still pretty damn sexy. Maybe it’s all the sculpted metal, maybe it’s because they have bodies that just won’t quit — or perhaps we just have that weak mortal need to reason. While your man may think he’s dragging you along to watch his fave sci-fi/action flicks, we know your secret — there’s always an eyeful for the ladies too. In homage to manly machines, after the jump are The Frisky’s “Top Five RWLH’s (Robots We’d Like to Hump)”.
