Daft Punk Look Sharp For ‘GQ’: See Photos From Their May Issue Shoot

My, what dapper robots Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo make when they’re all scrubbed up. We already know Daft Punk are crafty at serving the masses memorable music videos (see our roundup of their best), but it turns out the “Get Lucky” hit-makers also give good helmet, as evidenced by these pics by photographer Christian Anwander, from the duo’s shoot for the May issue of GQ. The above pic is from the magazine, while the one after the jump is actually an outtake from the session.

As to why Thomas and Guy are never seen sans helmets, the former offers this simple train of thought in the May GQ: “I remember when I was a kid, I would watch Superman, and I was super into the feeling of knowing that Clark Kent is Superman and no one knows. We always thought as we were shaping this thing that the fantasy was actually so much more exciting than the idea of being the most famous person in the world.”

In one rather tongue-in-cheek moment during their chat with the mag, Bangalter says of Daft Punk’s upcoming fourth album Random Access Memories, “In Scream 2, they have this discussion about how sequels always suck. The thing we can ask ourselves at some point is like: We’re making music for twenty years. How many bands and acts do you have that are still making good music after twenty years? It always sucks—almost always, you know?”

Homem-Christo adds, “So our new album is supposed to really suck.”

Somehow, we doubt it, guys. Catch the full interview over at GQ‘s official site.
