Daft Punk fans are about to seriously “get lucky.” The futuristic French DJs have partnered with condom manufacturer Durex to produce their own line of Daft Punk condoms, appropriately titled after their latest chart-topping single, “Get Lucky.”
NME was the first to officially report Daft Punk’s partnership with Durex on Wednesday, but it was fellow DJ Diplo who really let the cat out of the bag a few days earlier when he posted a photo of the Daft Punk 'Get Lucky' condom box on his Instagram account. The photo quickly went viral, earning plenty of likes and less-than-reprintable parodies of Daft Punk lyrics.
The box for Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” condoms is fairly simple and unobtrusive: just a photo of a four-piece band playing in front of a large sunset, the same image used for the “Get Lucky” single cover. The back of the box is emblazoned with both the Daft Punk and Durex logos.
There’s no word yet on when the Daft Punk condoms will be released to the general public, or whether the condoms actually resemble Daft Punk’s robot outfits.
For obsessive Daft Punk fans, there’s more merchandise besides “Get Lucky” condoms on the horizion. NME also reports that Daft Punk have partnered with Japanese toymakers Bandai and SH Figuarts to release a line of Daft Punk action figures.
According to a product description, the Daft Punk action figures are “crafted with meticulous attention to detail -- [the] helmet area employs a shiny metallic finish and clear parts for enhanced realism." The action figures will be sold separately and feature "advanced S.H. Figuarts articulation and seven sets of left/right interchangeable hand parts for recreation of dynamic posing,” so we’re not talking about cheap-looking figures here. Expect the Daft Punk action figures to hit the stands on Nov. 28 in Japan and Dec. 27 in America, according to Amazon listings.
At the moment, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” is still No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, sitting just below Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.”
