Daft Punk have released their own brand of ‘Get Lucky’ condoms.
The French duo have teamed up with Durex to produce a packed emblazoned with the cover art of chart-topping tune from their latest album ‘Random Access Memories’. To promote the packs, Durex have been posting samples to DJs. Earlier this week, Diplo posted a picture of an opened packet on Instagram with the caption “Thank god I had those daft punk condoms last night”.
The condoms are the latest piece of Daft Punk merchandise to be revealed this week. The band have also created their own line of action figures with Bandai and Japan’s SH Figuarts. According to a product description, the figures were “crafted with meticulous attention to detail – [the] helmet area employs a shiny metallic finish and clear parts for enhanced realism”. In addition, they feature “advanced SH Figuarts articulation and seven sets of left/right interchangeable hand parts for recreation of dynamic posing”.
The toys will be sold separately but won’t officially be out until later this year, with a Japanese release date set for November and an American date at the end of December.
Meanwhile, Daft Punk‘s ‘Get Lucky’ has become the first single released in 2013 to sell a million copies in the UK. The disco hit, which features Pharrell Willliams and Chic’s Nile Rodgers, is the 136th single to shift a million in the 60-year history of the UK singles chart.
