Published Jan 27, 2014Last night (January 26) was a massive triumph for Daft Punk, since the robots took home a whopping five Grammys, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Dance/Electronica Album, and Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical). Now, the acclaimed electronic duo have had had their big night chronicled via the Taiwanese animation studio TomoNews.
The minute-long clip mixes live footage with original CGI animations, which show the robots in their white outfits while doling out fist-pumps and high-fives after winning the trophies. The featurette takes a loosely accurate approach to history, since we see the pair piling their loot into a large sack, burning computers, playing a game of tic-tac-toe during a mimed live performance, and attempting to tame an early evolutionary sea creature.
Meanwhile, a voiceover fills us in on exactly how the Grammy victory went down, and it brands Daft Punk "a couple of baguette-munching French robots."
Watch the slightly bizarre news report below. The animation isn't exactly Pixar-worthy, but it's a pretty funny depiction of the image-conscious duo.
