Let’s face it, Daft Punk were kind of (read: complete) duds at the MTV Video Music Awards last night while presenting the Best Female Video statue to Taylor Swift. Thankfully the silent duo were were accompanied on stage by their “Get Lucky” collaborators, charismatic hit-maker Pharrell Williams and legendary disco god Nile Rodgers, otherwise things would have been really awkward. (Even Tay thought they were a snooze, and barely acknowledged the limp Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo when she stepped up to the foursome.)
It wasn’t all a downer as far as the Robots were concerned, though — just like in the spring with current summer smash “Get Lucky,” a truncated music video of sorts was previewed during a commercial break for “Lose Yourself To Dance,” the next single off Random Access Memories. Who knows if we’ll ever set eyes on a a full visual for the song? This one comes in at a minute long, so grab what you can get.
Watch a gold-and-sepia-toned crowd boogie down around a shiny stage featuring Thomas, Guy-Man, Pharrell and Nile above, then let us know below if you think “Lose Yourself To Dance” will get just as lucky as Daft Punk’s previous hit did on the charts.
