Beyoncé performing @ the 2014 VMAs
DJ: “Now Guy-Manuel, he’s not as fluent in English as you are Thomas, but I do want him to get involved. So why don’t we play Da Funk and in his finest DJ voice, introduce Da Funk.”
Thomas: [whispers in French]
Guy-Man: [emerges from the depths] “FRANCAIS?!”
DJ: “Oui. Si vous plait.”
Guy-Man: Uhhh [perfect intro]
Daft Punk’s Original Helmet Sculptures
From Brian Cox, SFX designer:
A couple of interesting things in these original design notes: First, on Thomas’ helmet, you can see there were supposed to be a small set of “UV” meter LEDs on the collar. The mechanical collar idea never made it into the final product, so obviously this feature didn’t either, although the circuit and PCBs were fabricated and stuffed.
Funny but true: the ear piece is actually the bottom of a Pepsi can! Kind of obvious when you see it in the raw clay.
On Guy’s helmet, the original plan called for as many as ten colored segments. But practicality won out and we went with eight, since all our pre-designed chaser circuits were 8-bit.
The notes for Guy’s “UV” meter circuit board and other auxiliary light are nearly exact to the final product, including the “kill these” notes on the hidden LEDs.
"nerd" and"loser" were like hard hitting insults in the early 2000’s and now they are used as affectionate terms we have truly come full circle
Sorry, but no, we did a 180. A full circle would mean we went back to them as insults
once in the 4th grade this guy got a 2% on his math quiz so everyone called him milk for the rest of the year
