The Strokes frontman appears as himself and a puppet in the promo

Daft Punk have revealed the full version of the video for their track ‘Instant Crush’, featuring a puppet version of Julian Casablancas of The Strokes.

The video, which was teased on a French news channel yesterday, can be seen in full above. Casablancas appears as himself in the video and as a mannequin dressed like Napolean.

‘Instant Crush’ is the latest single to be taken from the French duo’s album ‘Random Access Memories’. The LP was originally released on May and this week had its record as the UK’s fastest-selling album of 2013 beaten by One Direction.


Daft Punk recently released details of a ‘Random Access Memories’ deluxe boxset. The set will be priced at £175 and is believed to be ready to hit shelves in time for Christmas. It will feature a special edition 180 gram double vinyl of the album and a 10-inch vinyl, plus a host of memorabilia and collectibles including a 56-page cloth-bound hardcover photo book of images taken from the recording sessions.
