Daft Punk Raise The Helmet In Their “Derezzed” Video

The release of TRON: Legacy is now a week-and-a-half away, TRON-o-philes. And in case you’ve had a short circuit, Daft Punk’s soundtrack is out today. So what better time for the French duo’s official “Derezzed” video to premiere? Watch the pair step into Flynn’s arcade and have a video game face-off below. The first thing that becomes apparent once these electronic wiz kids get zapped into the Derezzed game is that—holy Bruce Boxleitner!—the graphics are more 1982 TRON than 2010 TRON: Legacy. (Actually, as MTV Buzzworthy points out, combine the original movie’s lo-fi effects with the eye-popping look of the new one.)

Thomas and Guy-Manuel cycle around their digital landscape and have a jousting match, but their can only be one winner. And finally, when the last one is standing, they lift their helmet to reveal—gasp—it’s actually TRON: Legacy actress Olivia Wilde underneath. Sigh.
