Daft Punk – Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem

Daft Punk are a highly influential electronic duo who surround themselves in mystique (the pair are rarely photographed without some kind of disguise), and produce songs that have captured a global imagination (their debut album sold over 2 million copies). Always keen to push back the boundaries of the video medium, the band have worked with luminaries such as Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry, and Roman Coppola.

After their arrival and their impact on the human population, the members of the band try to piece back their identities, escape from the clutches of the evil music executive, and return to their own world
