Watch as Daft Punk didn't Get Lucky in an online interview with The Colbert Report as part of the Colbchella music series. The new Daft Punk album Random Access Memories is one the Summer’s most happening albums, and the interview might have included Daft Punk without helmets and talked about the lyrics for "Get Lucky" and the rest of the album.
Instead, the band pulled out due to contractual obligations with MTV ... MTV and Comedy Central are both owned by Viacom, and Daft Punk is scheduled to appear at the MTV Video Music Awards soon. Who #failed here? Daft Punk, who over-obligated themselves without knowing the details.
Stephen Colbert said "We booked Click and Clack over here about a month ago. Apparently, Daft Punk are going to make a surprise appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards. Don’t tell anyone, because fun fact: no one told me until two hours ago.”
The Colbert Report kicked it all off with the announcement this week, saying “The Song of the Summer, Of the Century. It Aint the Heat, It's the Rock-midity. With Special Guest Daft Punk.” Daft Punk has been all around the world with both “Get Lucky” and Random Access Memories this Summer, wit the DEFINITIVE Summer jam and a long-overdue Daft Punk album.
