In 2008 Joe Cookie filmed me interviewing Daft Punk for Vice in conjunction with this horrible pollution corporation. The interview was conducted under very awkward circumstances. Details? Well, for instance, the corporate stooge from the pollution company was breathing down my neck telling me to ask them questions that I was certain they didn't want to discuss. Boring shit, biographical shit that they've discussed a million times already over their tenure in the music scene. On top of that, the radio guy had us all wearing really irritating earphones, typical of radio interviews, but something that makes conversation stilted and tedious, non-conversational. And while the two performers were nice enough guys, I got the sense that they felt forced into doing the "promotion" out of a sense of obligation. So, all in all, unless you really love daft punk, you may find this video incredibly dull and annoying. Yet I know that many people absolutely love DP, their music, their mystique, and to such extremes that even hearing them snore would bring about some weird sense of joy. And therefore I felt it was only fair to post this document irregardless of my trepidation. Lastly, seeing as they are a French import, the disguises we decided to wear are in homage to De La Soul (yo, I'm speaking Francais yo).
