Over the weekend, Daft Punk aired a mysterious 15 second ad during Saturday Night Live. No other information was given, just 15 glorious seconds of Daft Punk. Lucky for everyone, Youtube user dj7848 has made a 10 hour loop of the clip:
Hoping we get details about the release soon because aside from their 2010 score to Tron: Legacy, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo haven't released an album since 2005's Human After All. Besides Rodgers, Chilly Gonzales, Panda Bear and even Muppets songwriter Paul Williams have all allegedly contributed to Daft Punk's recording, and the duo announced in January that they had signed a deal with Columbia Records.
