DAFT PUNK are a French electronic music duo formed in 1993 by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter . The duo achieved significant popularity in the late 1990s as part of the French house movement and had continuous success in the years following, combining elements of house music with funk , techno , disco , rock music and synthpop influences. They are also known for their visual stylization and disguises associated with their music; the duo have worn ornate helmets and gloves to assume robot personas in most of their public appearances since 2001 and rarely grant interviews or appear on television. The duo were managed from 1996 to 2008 by Pedro Winter (also known as Busy P), the head of Ed Banger Records .

Bangalter and Homem-Christo were originally briefly in an indie rock band named Darlin\' . When the group disbanded, it left the two to experiment musically with drum machines and synthesisers . The duo released their debut studio album _Homework _ through Virgin Records in 1997 to highly positive reviews. The duo's next album _Discovery _ (2001) was even more successful, driven by the release of the hit singles "One More Time ", "Digital Love " and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger ". In March 2005, the duo released their third album _Human After All _ to mixed reviews. However, the singles " Robot Rock " and " Technologic " achieved considerable success in the United Kingdom.

Daft Punk toured throughout 2006 and 2007 and released the live album _ Alive 2007 _, which won a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album . The duo later composed the score for the Disney film _Tron: Legacy _ in 2010, and released its soundtrack album that same year. In January 2013, Daft Punk left Virgin for Columbia Records , and released their next album _ Random Access Memories _ in 2013 to worldwide critical acclaim. The album's lead single "Get Lucky " became an international success, peaking on top 10 charts in 32 countries. _Random Access Memories_ won five Grammy Awards in 2014, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for "Get Lucky". Daft Punk later gained their first number one on the _Billboard_ Hot 100 with the song "Starboy ", a collaboration with The Weeknd .

HISTORY

1987–1992: EARLY CAREER

Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter met in 1987 while attending the Lycée Carnot , a secondary school in Paris. The two became good friends and later recorded demo tracks with others from the school. This eventually led to the formation of a guitar-based group called Darlin\' with Laurent Brancowitz in 1992. Bangalter and Homem-Christo played bass and guitar, respectively, while Brancowitz was brought on board after the two sought an additional guitarist. The trio had branded themselves after The Beach Boys song of the same name , which they covered along with an original composition. Stereolab released both tracks on a multi-artist Duophonic Records EP and invited the band to open for stage shows in the United Kingdom. Bangalter felt that "The rock n' roll thing we did was pretty average, I think. It was so brief, maybe six months, four songs and two gigs and that was it." A negative review in _ Melody Maker _ by Dave Jennings subsequently dubbed the music "a daft punky thrash." Instead of dismissing the review, they found it amusing. As Homem-Christo stated, "We struggled so long to find Darlin', and this happened so quickly." Darlin' soon disbanded, leaving Brancowitz to pursue other efforts with Phoenix . Bangalter and Homem-Christo formed Daft Punk and experimented with drum machines and synthesisers.

1993–1999: _HOMEWORK_

In September 1993, Daft Punk attended a rave at EuroDisney , where they met Stuart Macmillan of Slam , co-founder of the label Soma Quality Recordings . The demo tape given to Macmillan at the rave formed the basis for Daft Punk's debut single, "The New Wave ", a limited release in 1994. The single also contained the final mix of "The New Wave" called "Alive", which was to be featured on Daft Punk's first album.

Daft Punk returned to the studio in May 1995 to record "Da Funk ". It became the duo's first commercially successful single the same year. After the success of "Da Funk", Daft Punk looked to find a manager. The duo eventually settled on Pedro Winter , who regularly promoted them and other artists at his Hype night clubs. The band signed with Virgin Records in September 1996 and made a deal through which the duo licensed its tracks to the major label through its production company, Daft Trax. Bangalter stated that while the duo received numerous offers from record labels, they wanted to wait and ensure that Daft Punk did not lose creative control. He ultimately considered the deal with Virgin to be more akin to a partnership.

In the mid-to-late nineties, Daft Punk performed live without costumes in many places including the United States. In 1996, the duo were featured at an Even Furthur event in Wisconsin , their first public performance in the U.S. In addition to live original performances, they performed a number of times in various clubs using vinyl records from their collection. They were known for incorporating various styles of music into their DJ sets at that time.

"Da Funk" and "Alive" were later included on Daft Punk's 1997 debut album _Homework _. In February of that year, the UK dance magazine _ Muzik _ published a Daft Punk cover feature and described _Homework_ as "one of the most hyped debut albums in a long long time." According to _ The Village Voice _, the album revived house music and departed from the Eurodance formula. As noted by critic Alex Rayner, _Homework_ brought together established club styles and the "burgeoning eclecticism" of big beat . In 1997 Daft Punk also launched their _ Daftendirektour _ to promote _Homework_ in several cities throughout the world. For this tour the duo opted to utilize their home studio equipment for the live stage. As Bangalter stated, "Everything was synched up—the drum machines, the bass lines. The sequencer was just sending out the tempos and controlling the beats and bars. On top of this structure we built all these layers of samples and various parts that we could bring in whenever we wanted to." 25 May 1997 saw them perform at the Tribal Gathering festival at Luton Hoo , England, headlining with Orbital and Kraftwerk .

The most successful single from _Homework_ was "Around the World ", which is known for the repeating chant of the song's title. "Da Funk" was also included on _The Saint _ film soundtrack. Daft Punk produced a series of music videos for _Homework_ directed by Spike Jonze , Michel Gondry , Roman Coppola and Seb Janiak. The collection of videos was released in 1999 and titled _D.A.F.T.: A Story About Dogs, Androids, Firemen and Tomatoes _.

1999–2003: _DISCOVERY_

By 1999, the duo was well into the recording sessions for its second album, which had begun a year earlier. The 2001 release of _Discovery _ took on a slicker and distinctly synthpop -oriented style, initially stunning fans of Daft Punk's previous material in _Homework_. The group states that the album was conceived as an attempt to reconnect with a playful, open-minded attitude associated with the discovery phase of childhood. This accounts for the heavy use of themes and samples from the late '70s to early '80s era on the album. The album reached No. 2 in the United Kingdom, and its single, "One More Time ", was a major club and mainstream hit that nearly topped the UK Singles Chart. The song is well known for being heavily autotuned and compressed . The song and album created a new generation of fans mainly familiar with the second Daft Punk release. The singles "Digital Love " and " Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger " were also very successful in the UK and on the United States dance chart. "Digital Love" was subsequently covered by the bands Kodaline and Hellogoodbye. The song "Face to Face " hit No. 1 on the USA club play charts. A 45-minute excerpt from a _Daftendirektour_ performance recorded at Birmingham, UK in 1997 was also released in 2001, titled _ Alive 1997 _. The year 2003 saw the release of the feature-length animated film, _Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem _. Daft Punk produced the film under the supervision of Leiji Matsumoto , who is their childhood hero. The album _ Daft Club _ was also released to promote the film. It features a collection of remixes previously made available through an online membership service of the same name.

2004–2007: _HUMAN AFTER ALL_

Starting on 13 September and ending on 9 November 2004, Daft Punk devoted six weeks to the creation of new material. The duo later released the resulting album _ Human After All _ in March 2005. Reviews were mixed, mostly citing its overly repetitive nature and seemingly hasty recording. The singles taken from this album were " Robot Rock ", " Technologic ", " Human After All ", and "The Prime Time of Your Life ". The earliest official statement from Daft Punk concerning the album was "we believe that _Human After All_ speaks for itself." A Daft Punk anthology CD/DVD titled _ Musique Vol. 1 1993–2005 _ was released on 4 April 2006. It contains music videos for " Robot Rock (Maximum Overdrive)" and "The Prime Time of Your Life" directed by Daft Punk and Tony Gardner , respectively. Daft Punk also released a remix album of _Human After All_ called _Human After All: Remixes _. A limited edition included two kubricks of Daft Punk as robots.

On 21 May 2006, Daft Punk premiered its first directed film, _Daft Punk\'s Electroma _, at the Cannes Film Festival sidebar Director's Fortnight. The film does not include Daft Punk's own music, which is a first for the duo considering its previous DVD and film releases (_D.A.F.T._ for _Homework_ and _Interstella 5555_ for _Discovery_). Midnight screenings of the film were shown in Paris theaters starting from the end of March 2007. Initial public comments have since been positive.

The Alive 2006/2007 tour began with a sole United States performance at the Coachella Festival in Indio, California in May 2006. Several festival appearances in Europe followed throughout the summer. Two consecutive performances also took place at the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan, held in Osaka and Chiba City respectively. Daft Punk's final performance of the year occurred in the autumn, when they visited South America and played their second U.S. performance at the Bang! Music Festival in Miami, Florida .

In June 2007, the duo resumed touring, beginning with an appearance at the RockNess music festival in the United Kingdom. After further shows and festival performances in Europe, the act returned to North America for a full-fledged eight date tour. This reached many markets for the first time on the trek and included a headline festival slot at Lollapalooza in Chicago. A second leg of shows in October followed, consisting of an appearance at the Vegoose music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada and three shows in Mexico. Daft Punk also mixed and composed much of the music for the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008 Womenswear Full Show on 7 October 2007. In December 2007, the duo returned to Japan to play a trio of dates. This was followed by a series of special shows in Australia, dubbed "Never Ever Land". The dates featured regular tour stalwarts SebastiAn and Kavinsky and were ultimately the fastest selling Daft Punk-related events to date. The tour eventually culminated in Sydney at the Showground Main Arena .

Daft Punk released its second live album titled _ Alive 2007 _ on 19 November 2007. It contains the duo's performance in Paris from the _Alive 2007_ tour. The live version of "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" from _Alive 2007_ was released as a single. Olivier Gondry directed a music video for the single that features footage shot by 250 audience members at Daft Punk's Brooklyn appearance at KeySpan Park, Coney Island .

2007–2011: _TRON: LEGACY_

_ Daft Punk in DJ Hero _

Following the _Alive 2007_ tour, the duo focused on other projects. Daft Punk made a surprise appearance at the 50th Grammy Awards on 10 February 2008. The duo appeared with Kanye West to perform a reworked version of "Stronger " on stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. For the appearance, Daft Punk utilized four JazzMutant Lemur controllers. A press release specified that this was the first televised live performance by the duo in their career. Bangalter's wife Élodie Bouchez also attended the event. Daft Punk later stated in an EMI -sponsored live webchat that there would be no tour performances for 2008, and that they would instead focus on new projects.

A 2008 interview with Pedro Winter revealed that Daft Punk returned to its Paris studio to work on new material. Winter also stepped down from managing the duo to focus attention on his Ed Banger Records label and his work as Busy P. He stated in a later interview that Daft Punk is working with an unspecified management company in Los Angeles.The duo held its Daft Arts production office at the Jim Henson Studios complex in Hollywood. In 2008, Daft Punk placed 38th in a worldwide official poll of _ DJ Magazine _ after debuting at position 71 in the year before. On 8 February 2009, Daft Punk won Grammy Awards for _Alive 2007_ and its single "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger".

Later in February 2009, a website stated that a "hidden" tour had been set for 2009. An event for 13 February 2009 in Shanghai, China was mentioned in the website. It was later revealed to be a hoax unaffiliated with Daft Punk and a scam to sell tickets for a nonexistent event. Representatives of the band announced that Daft Punk had no tour plans for 2009, but stated that the duo was looking forward to performing in China during their next world tour "in 2010 or 2011". The announcement also stated that all of Daft Punk's shows are and would be posted on their official MySpace page, and that the page can therefore be used to verify validity.

Daft Punk provided eleven new mixes featuring its music for the video game _ DJ Hero _. The duo also appears in the game as a pair of playable characters, along with a unique venue. The duo appears wearing its _Discovery_-era helmets and _Human After All_-era leather attire. Daft Punk's playable likenesses are absent from the sequel _DJ Hero 2 _, which includes a remixed version of the song "Human After All".

At the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con , it was announced that the duo composed 24 tracks for the film _Tron: Legacy _. Daft Punk's score was arranged and orchestrated by Joseph Trapanese . The band collaborated with him for two years on the score, from pre-production to completion. The score features an 85-piece orchestra, recorded at AIR Lyndhurst Studios in London. Joseph Kosinski , director of the film, referred to the score as being a mixture of orchestral and electronic elements. The members of Daft Punk also make a cameo appearance as disc jockey programs wearing their trademark robot helmets within the film's virtual world. The soundtrack album of the film was released on 6 December 2010. A deluxe 2-disc edition of the album was also released that includes a poster of the duo from the film. Additional bonus tracks are also available through various online vendors. An official music video for "Derezzed", with a running time of less than two minutes, also premiered on the MTV Networks on the same day the album was released. The video, which features Olivia Wilde as the character Quorra in specially-shot footage, along with images of Daft Punk in Flynn's Arcade, was later made available for purchase from the iTunes Store and included in the DVD and Blu-ray releases of the film. Walt Disney Records released a remix album of the score titled _Tron: Legacy Reconfigured _ on 5 April 2011.

In 2010, Daft Punk were admitted into the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres , an order of merit of France. Bangalter and Homem-Christo were individually awarded the rank of _Chevalier_ (knight). On October of that year, Daft Punk made a surprise guest appearance during the encore of Phoenix 's show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. They played a medley of "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" and "Around the World" before the song segued into Phoenix's song "1901". The duo also included elements of their tracks "Rock'n Roll", "Human After All", as well as one of Bangalter's side projects, "Together".

2011–2016: _RANDOM ACCESS MEMORIES_

Soma Records released a previously unpublished Daft Punk track called "Drive" that was made while the duo was still with Soma Records and recording "Rollin' and Scratchin'" and "Da Funk". The track was included in a twentieth anniversary multi-artist compilation of the Soma label. In October 2011, Daft Punk placed 28th in a "top-100 DJs of 2011" list by _ DJ Magazine _ after appearing at position 44 in the year before. On 19 January 2012, Daft Punk ranked No. 2 on Mixmag's Greatest Dance Acts of All Time, with The Prodigy at No. 1 by just a few points.

Daft Punk worked on their fourth studio album, _Random Access Memories _ in collaboration with musicians Paul Williams and Chic frontman Nile Rodgers . In May 2012 it was also announced that Italian musician Giorgio Moroder had collaborated with the duo, recording a monologue about his life in a vocal booth containing microphones ranging from 1960 to present day. Chilly Gonzales stated in an interview that he had performed material for the duo's project in a one-day session: "I played for hours and they’re gonna grab what they grab and turn it into whatever." He also said that the album would be released "next spring". In October 2012, Daft Punk provided a fifteen-minute mix of songs by blues musician Junior Kimbrough for Hedi Slimane 's Yves Saint Laurent fashion show. The duo also placed 44th in _ DJ Magazine 's_ annual Top 100 DJs list.

In January 2013, Homem-Christo revealed that Daft Punk was in the process of signing with Sony Music Entertainment through the Columbia Records label, and that the album would have a spring release. A gradual promotional rollout was later launched featuring billboards and television spots, leading to the reveal of the album title and the release date of 21 May 2013. On 3 April, the official _Random Access Memories_ website launched _The Collaborators_, a series of documentary videos about the album. Later that month, a video preview for the song "Get Lucky " featuring Rodgers and Pharrell Williams was played at the 2013 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival . The radio edit of the song was released as a digital download single one week later on 19 April 2013. "Get Lucky" became Daft Punk's first UK No. 1 single on 28 April 2013 remaining at number one for 4 weeks (as of 24 May) and the Spotify music streaming website reported that the song is the most-streamed new song in the service's history. At the _ 2013 MTV Video Music Awards _, Daft Punk debuted a trailer for their single " Lose Yourself to Dance ," and presented the award for "Best Female Video" alongside Rodgers and Pharrell.

For the 56th Annual Grammy Awards , _Random Access Memories_ was awarded the Grammy for Best Dance/Electronica Album , Album of the Year and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical , while "Get Lucky" received the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and the Record of the Year . Daft Punk performed at the ceremony with Stevie Wonder , Rodgers, Pharrell Williams as well as _Random Access Memories_ rhythm section players Nathan East , Omar Hakim , Paul Jackson, Jr. and Chris Caswell. The ensemble performed "Get Lucky" before moving into a medley consisting of Chic's " Le Freak " and Stevie Wonder's "Another Star " as well as elements of Daft Punk's "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger", "Lose Yourself to Dance", and "Around the World". The stage backdrop used for the performance was designed by Daft Arts to resemble a recording studio, incorporating a functioning mixing console operated by Daft Punk. Pharrell later released his second studio album _G I R L _, in which Daft Punk performed additional vocals for the song "Gust of Wind". On 10 March 2014, an unreleased Daft Punk song called "Computerized" surfaced on the Internet. The song features Jay Z and appears to contain elements of "The Son of Flynn" from the _Tron: Legacy_ soundtrack.

In April 2015, Daft Punk appeared in a short tribute to Rodgers as part of a documentary on his life titled "Nile Rodgers: From Disco to Daft Punk". In the short clip, the two send a "transmission" to Rodgers with the message, "_Dear Nile, We are sending you this transmission to thank you for all your amazing songs. Your music continues to inspire the world... With love, Daft Punk_". Later in 2015, a documentary on Daft Punk titled _ Daft Punk Unchained _ was released. The film covers Daft Punk's music career from the 1990s up to and including their 2014 Grammy appearance. The documentary features interviews with Rodgers, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and others who have interacted with the duo in their projects.

2016–PRESENT: RECENT PROJECTS

_ Light-up outfits worn at the encore of the Alive 2007_ tour performances, later on display at a pop-up shop for a limited time

On 15 July 2016, in an interview for _Billboard_, Republic Records' executive vice president Wendy Goldstein released information regarding a collaboration between the duo and Canadian R"> Thomas Bangalter performing in Miami, Florida in 2007 Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo performing in Turin, Italy in 2007

Daft Punk are noted for their use of visual components associated with their musical productions. The music videos for their singles from _Homework_ featured distinctive characters and placed emphasis on storytelling instead of musical performance. The album _Discovery_ subsequently became the soundtrack to _Interstella 5555_.

Their outward personas have also changed over time. In one of the duo's earliest magazine appearances, Homem-Christo stated in a _Jockey Slut _ interview that, "We don't want to be photographed. We don't especially want to be in magazines. We have a responsibility." Although they allowed a camera crew to film them for a French television arts program at the time, Daft Punk did not wish to speak on screen "because it is dangerous." During their _Homework_ years, the duo would usually wear a variety of masks to hide their appearance. Bangalter noted that “the foundation for a lot of what we’re about artistically" is the 1974 film _Phantom of the Paradise _, in which the title character prominently wears a mask. Daft Punk were also fans of the 1970s band Space , known for wearing space suits with helmets that hid the performers' appearance. In 1998, the Bangalter side project Stardust experimented with the band wearing reflective costumes in their music video. When not wearing disguises, Daft Punk occasionally preferred to be replaced by animation (as they appeared in _The Work of Director Michel Gondry _ DVD) or have their faces digitally obscured for press kits. Few official photos of the duo's faces exist, including a blurry one found in the _Homework_ liner notes.

In their more visible _Discovery_ years, Daft Punk appeared wearing robotic headgear and metallic gloves for publicity photo shoots, interviews, live shows and music videos. The helmets were produced by Paul Hahn of Daft Arts and the French directors Alex and Martin , the duo who also designed them. With engineering by Tony Gardner and Alterian, Inc. , they are capable of various LED effects. Wigs were originally attached to both helmets, but the duo removed them just before the outfits were publicly unveiled in 2001. Daft Punk introduced the costumes to many U.S. television viewers in an advertisement during a special presentation of the music videos from the _Discovery_ album during Cartoon Network 's Toonami block. Bangalter once stated, "_We did not choose to become robots. There was an accident in our studio. We were working on our sampler, and at exactly 9:09 am on September 9, 1999, it exploded. When we regained consciousness, we discovered that we had become robots_."

Daft Punk have said that they donned their robot outfits to easily merge the characteristics of humans and machines. However, Bangalter later stated that the costumes were initially the result of shyness. "But then it became exciting from the audience's point of view. It's the idea of being an average guy with some kind of superpower." When asked whether the duo expressed themselves differently within the robotic suits, Bangalter stated "No, we don't need to. It's not about having inhibitions. It's more like an advanced version of glam , where it's definitely not you." With the release of _Human After All_, the musical duo's outfits became slightly less complicated by consisting of black leather jacket and pants and simplified versions of the _Discovery_ headgear. The attire was designed by Hedi Slimane . Bangalter stated that, "We never like to do the same thing twice. It's more fun and entertaining for us to do something different, whether it's wearing masks or developing a persona that merges fiction and reality. We're happy to give back to the masses".

According to Bangalter, the duo has a "general rule about not appearing in videos." Although Daft Punk rarely grants interviews, Bangalter is cited as being the more talkative and opinionated one of the duo. With regard to fame and stardom, he said:

“ We don't believe in the star system . We want the focus to be on the music. If we have to create an image, it must be an artificial image. That combination hides our physicality and also shows our view of the star system. It is not a compromise.

We're trying to separate the private side and the public side. It's just that we're a little bit embarrassed by the whole thing. We don't want to play this star system thing. We don't want to get recognised in the streets. Yes. Everyone has accepted us using masks in photos so far, which makes us happy. Maybe sometimes people are a little bit disappointed but that's the only way we want to do it. We think the music is the most personal thing we can give. The rest is just about people taking themselves seriously, which is all very boring sometimes. ”

In the same interview, he was also asked a question if stardom can be avoided.

“ Yes. I think people understand what we are doing. I know many people who maybe like the way we are handling things. People understand that you don't need to be on the covers of magazines with your face to make good music. Painters or other artists, you don't know them but you know what they are doing. We are very happy that the concept in itself is becoming famous. In France, you speak of Daft Punk and I'm sure millions of people have heard it, but less than a few thousand people know our face—which is the thing we're into. We control it, but it's not us physically, our persons. We don't want to run into people who are the same age as us, shaking our hand and saying, 'Can I have your autograph?' because we think we're exactly like them. Even girls, they can fall in love with your music, but not with you. You don't always have to compromise yourself to be successful. The playing with masks is just to make it funnier. Pictures can be boring. We don't want all the rock n\' roll poses and attitudes—they are completely stupid and ridiculous today. ”

Daft Punk during an interview in the television show Kastljós on Sjónvarpið

During the filming and promotion of _Daft Punk's Electroma_, the duo went to great lengths to avoid showing their faces. While on the set of the film, the duo chose to be interviewed with their backs turned. As reported on October 2006, the band went as far as to wear black cloth over their heads during a televised interview. During this interview they noted that the use of cloth bags in particular had been a spontaneous decision, reflecting their willingness to experiment with their perceived image in the media.

It is believed that the mystery of their identity and the elaborate nature of their disguises have added to their popularity. The iconic status of the robotic costumes has been compared to the makeup of KISS and the leather jacket worn by Iggy Pop . Bangalter has noted, "The mask gets very hot, but after wearing it as long as I have, I am used to it." He later stated that the helmets in their current iteration are fitted with ventilators to prevent overheating.

Daft Punk continued to wear the robot costumes in their live performances at the 2008, 2014 and 2017 Grammy Awards, with variations in clothing. During the 2014 ceremony, they also accepted their awards on stage in the outfits, with Pharrell and Paul Williams speaking on the duo's behalf. At the time the decision to stay in costume drew criticism from viewers on Twitter, including future White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer . In both their appearance at the 2017 Grammy Awards and in the Weeknd's "I Feel It Coming" music video, the duo wore long black capes and chrome-plated gloves along with their customary helmets.

APPEARANCES IN MEDIA

_ Daft Punk's cameo appearance in Interstella 5555 _

Daft Punk's popularity has been partially attributed to their appearances in mainstream media. The duo appeared with Juliette Lewis in an advertisement for The Gap , featuring the single "Digital Love ", and were contractually obliged to appear only in Gap clothing. In the summer of 2001, Daft Punk appeared in an advertisement on Cartoon Network's Toonami timeslot, promoting the official Toonami website and the duo's animated music videos for their album _Discovery _. The music videos later appeared as scenes in the feature-length film _Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem _, in which Daft Punk make a cameo appearance as their robot alter-egos. The duo later appeared in a television advertisement wearing their _Discovery_-era headgear to promote Sony Ericsson 's Premini mobile phone. Their robotic costumes also make an appearance in the "Masterclass" section on Chilly Gonzales ' 2006 DVD release _From Major to Minor_. In 2010, Daft Punk appeared in Adidas advertisements promoting a _ Star Wars _-themed clothing line.

Daft Punk has also produced music for other artists. They produced the Teriyaki Boyz 's debut single " HeartBreaker " on the album _Beef or Chicken? _. The song contains a sample of "Human After All". Daft Punk later produced N.E.R.D 's song "Hypnotize U". Daft Punk are featured on the cover of the December 2010 issue of British publication _Dazed & Confused _ to promote the film _Tron: Legacy _, for which the duo composed the score. They also made a cameo appearance within the film as masked DJs at the "End of Line" nightclub.

In 2011, Coca-Cola distributed limited edition bottles designed by Daft Punk, called Daft Coke. They were only sold in France. A newer version of these themed bottles now exist as collectors items, some parts of the bottles such as the cap and Coke logo being plated in gold. Daft Punk, along with Courtney Love were photographed for the "Music Project" of fashion house Yves Saint Laurent . The duo appear in their new sequined suits custom made by Hedi Slimane , holding and playing their new instruments with bodies made of lucite . In 2013, Bandai Tamashii released a S.H. Figuarts (SHF) action figure for Daft Punk coinciding with the release of _Random Access Memories_ in Japan. Following a series a teaser trailers, Daft Punk made a rare public appearance at the 2013 Monaco Grand Prix in May on behalf of the Lotus F1 Team , who supported the duo by racing in specially-branded cars emblazoned with the band's logo.

Daft Punk were scheduled to appear on the episode of _The Colbert Report _ on 6 August 2013 to promote _Random Access Memories_, but were unable to do so because of contractual obligations regarding the duo's later appearance at the _ 2013 MTV Video Music Awards _. According to Stephen Colbert , Daft Punk were unaware of any exclusivity agreement and were halted by MTV executives the morning prior to the taping. In 2015, Daft Punk appeared alongside several other musicians to announce their co-ownership of the music service Tidal at its relaunch.
