It makes me rlly sad thinking abt how Daft Punk's career turned out. Sure they wrote one of the greatest electronic/dance albums of all time... but then they 'sold out' [via Disney] 2 do Tron. Now they are partnering with another billion dollar Fortune 500 company, Coca Cola, in order to go more mainstream and make more easy money.
I guess u gotta give them props 4 riding the robot brand all the way to the bank...but at the same time... sorta just wish they'd sample some solid dance music and make music worth blogging abt again, instead of just coasting off their pre-existing brand.
Following a successful collaboration with Mika in 2010, soft drink giant Coca-Cola partners up with another major act in 2011 as they introduce the Daft Punk x Coca-Cola “Club Coke”. Produced in two distinctive colorways, mimicking the helmets worn by the French duo, the gold and silver bottles will see a limited production run beginning in March 2011. In addition to the general release at clubs, the bottles will be packaged in a collector’s box as a set, made available in exclusively through colette in Paris. Further information on this collaboration will become available through Daftcoke.com, which goes live in a few months.
Part of me only wants to drink Daft Coke 4 the rest of my life...
but at the same time... maybe it is time 2 switch 2 Pepsi.
Sorta get the feeling that the new Coke Daft Punk flavor tastes like rusty nails, ethernet cords, and USB flash drives.... Doesn't sound 2 tasty 2 me.
Here is some boring commercial/promo that features some new boring sounding Daft Punk music.
I wonder if Mountain Dew is 'regretting' Green Label Sound... Like 'we shoulda just spent all of that money on buying a Daft Punk album instead of wasting it on all of these low level blog buzzbands.'
Is Daft Punk 'the future of how bands will make money'?
R u sad abt Daft Punk's career, or happy that they will make money?
What's ur fave flavor of coke? Vanilla Coke? Coke Zero? Cherry Coke?
Did Coca Cola outsource their vending machines + fountain stations 2 robots? [via touch screen]
Can Daft Punk ever be relevant again, or are they just 'coasting' off their pre-existing brand?
