Daft Punk

There are few known photos of Daft Punk without their robot helmets, iconic headpieces that have inspired pricey imitations on the secondary market. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo recently told Rolling Stone “We’re not performers, we’re not models — it would not be enjoyable for humanity to see our features.” You might disagree.

The French duo, whose Random Access Memories debuted at #1 on the Billboard Charts and landed at #4 on our list of the best albums of 2013 so far, was in NYC yesterday filming something with model Karlie Kloss. When they stopped in at Columbia HQ and drank some champagne, the helmets came off and production duo the Knocks shared a photo on Facebook. Check it out below, along with a Vine of the robots on the streets on Manhattan.

Random Access Memories is out now via Columbia.

  2. the referenced rolling stone article already published a picture of them helmetless, albeit from 20 years ago

    are they ever going to drop that video for “get lucky” or what?

  3. a) we did not take the picture, it was already on the internet. b) we are not label mates with daft punk. We are on a completely different label. Please check facts!

  4. c) those are macaroons, not ping pong balls. silly

  5. d) is for daft punk

  6. Well this retroactively ruins all of my Daft Punk fan fiction.

  7. This article just kind of weirds me out. I never actually really thought of them as real people, if that makes sense.

  8. Well, they’re definitely not models.

  9. This is news? I googled “Daft Punk without helmets” a long time ago and saw their faces. This ain’t like when that guy who revealed all the magic tricks on tv revealed himself. That dude coulda been murdered. Magicians don’t fuck around.

  10. Seriously, where is the fuck is the video for Get Lucky? There has to be a full video of it otherwise why would Pharrell deck himself out in expensive rhinestones for only a minute?

    • It’s part of a DP-hype campaign – they would happily pay to let them ride a gemstone covered dragon to the Moon if it suited them.

      And they have said there won’t be any music videos for this album

  11. Have fun deleting this comment, Scott and Amrit.

    • I found my comment I thought had been deleted (which was totally inoffensive and just listed what albums I liked so far this year.) I don’t know why CTRL+F isn’t working on here. Apologies!
