Daft Punk Make Rare Appearance At MTV VMAs!
French duo were on hand to present Taylor Swift her award...
Monday, August 26, 2013 - 03:10
Collaborators Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers also joined the duo on stage, as the group donned matching sequinned blazers to welcome Taylor to the stage.
Following a brand-new, Soul Train-esque clip featuring Daft Punk and Co. performing Lose Yourself To Dance, the French electronic duo emerged from a giant version of the KAWS Moonman's head.
Predictably, Pharrell and Rodgers did all the talking when presenting Swift with her award, as Daft Punk stood silently by presumably watching all the action from behind their gleaming helmets.
From action figures to bootleg condoms, Daft Punk's iconic helmets have become damn near ubiquitous since the chart-topping release of Random Access Memories in May and the massive success of their Pharrell-featuring single, Get Lucky.
That song scored the masked men a VMA nomination for Best Song of the Summer -unfortunately losing out to One Direction's Best Song Ever on the night.
The 2013 MTV Video Awards will be shown on MTV from 8pm on Monday August 26.
