Human After All
Daft punk played with masquerade very early on. For example, in an early press photo they are sitting as green frogs on a lily pad.
Since 1999 they have only shown themselves in public with robotic helmets, thus preserving their private anonymity and inspiring EDM stars like Deadmau5 or Marshmello not only in terms of sound.
Daft Punk showed again and again that they are still very “humane” pop culture nerds by gradually fulfilling many dreams. For example, they were able to win over Japanese manga and anime artist Leiji Matsumoto (including “Space Battleship Yamato” and “Captain Harlock”), whom they have admired since childhood, for the videos for their 2001 album “Discovery”.
The videos of “One More Time feat. Romanthony ”,“ Aerodynamic ”,“ Digital Love ”and“ Harder. Better. Faster. Stronger ”finally culminated in the over an hour-long anime music film“ Interstella 5555 – The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem ”.
