Daft Punk + Durex Want You to ‘Get Lucky’ With New Condoms
Have you been up all night recently getting lucky? If so, good for you!
The name of the French duo’s lead track from their album ‘Random Access Memories’ pretty much lends itself to a line of condoms, so we’re just glad Durex stepped in to make this a reality. The only people to get their hands on these special edition condoms so far are celebs like Diplo, who tweeted:
Thank god I had those daft punk condoms last night http://t.co/ZTL5C1hvV5

This isn’t Daft Punk’s only endeavor into merchandising lately, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo will also release action figures in their likeness. The figures were designed to look like the duo all dressed up in their sleek ‘Random Access Memories’ suits.
The real question we have is — will the action figures have faces underneath their helmets, which will FINALLY reveal what the guys of Daft Punk really look like?! Highly doubtful, but we can dream can’t we?
Update: Turns out Daft Punk do not have a partnership with Durex at all!
Diplo actually kickstarted this story, as the Major Lazer mastermind posted a picture of the fake ‘Get Lucky’ condoms on Twitter as a joke. After rumors began circulating, a representative for Daft Punk released the following statement (via AceShowbiz):
“We are aware of reports that Durex has launched Daft Punk branded condoms following their hit single ‘Get Lucky.’ There is no Durex promotion or partnership with Daft Punk in the U.S. or any other markets and Durex is not posting free packs to the world’s top DJs as suggested. However, we do hope that by using Durex condoms, music-lovers will continue to make sweet music together and have great sex!”
