On the 9th of September, 1999, at 9.09am, Daft Punk became robots
According to legend,a failure in the duo's hardware meant that during the morning hours of 9/9/99, Daft Punk lost much of their material and were forced to continue making their music as robots. For the first and last time, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo donned their helmets and were never seen again.
In order to commemorate such a monumental day, we've found some internet goodies that stand only to corroborate the fact that since becoming machines, Daft Punk have changed the world. You think it, we think it, and my goodness, even Barack Obama thinks it. Just look.
HAPPY DAFT PUNK DAY.
WITH LOVE FROM BARACK OBAMA xxx
