It's pretty smart not to show your face; that way you dont' get pestered in public, and you can send someone else as you if you don't want to go somewhere.
User avatar #128 to #90 - mutzaki ONLINE (06/22/2013) [-]
It also helps a psychological effect where you will find a character a lot cooler when you don't have a human face to associate with them. This is often used for video game characters, as you won't be disappointed by finding out you don't like the appearance of the masked character you've grown to love.

The reason Master Chief's face is never shown is to make the player feel a personal connection like they could be Chief.
User avatar #155 to #152 - mutzaki ONLINE (06/22/2013) [-]
Yeah, that's part of it.
#140 to #90 - Malkyor (06/22/2013) [-]
In a way, not showing their faces also helps to prevent age from effecting their image. It happens to everyone over the years (obviously), the band can't hit the notes like they used to or they just can't do some of the things they used to. But with Daft Punk, you would have no idea their age, and with the type of music they play, their sound is also uneffected by age.

tl;dr
Daft Punk is immortal

I think they still perform the songs live, but the TV series is officially finished. Kinda sad and I think it could have gone on more, but I respect them for not dragging it out for money.

First off, advertising done right.

You do realize the ads work similarly to the light bulb right?

Except they use the images displayed on the page to attempt to show an ad related to what you're viewing.

Basically, they think the ads are of your taste.

Wait, why would they decline on the offer to remix a Bowie song, especially when Bowie himself asked for it? I could have been epic!

because they're pretentious douche bag's who make ****** remix's of mediocre music and come up with even worse music of their own.
#81 to #78 - anon (06/22/2013) [-]
Thank you. That is a ******* fact. Anyone hear their newest album? Sounds like 80's roller skate music.
#156 to #81 - rieskimo (06/22/2013) [-]
They're not pretentious douchebags you ******* nitwit. They're artists that have some form of integrity, of which I admire considering how easy it could be for them to just rake in the money off a bunch of half-baked remixes.

Just because you don't appreciate their new album doesn't mean it's bad and you're a ******* moron if you think it sounds like it's from the eighties. It's obviously heavily influenced from the 70's period music.

They do what they want when they want to, that's what makes them leaders in their genre.

I understand you may not appreciate them but that doesn't mean others aren't allowed to appreciate them.

They decline a lot of people....politely ofcourse. its in their documentary that they only remix songs that they want. they will take no requests.

According to the pictures in the booklet in Random Access Memories, Guy-Manuel is a robot and Thomas is a human brain in a robot helmet. Do I believe it? Yes. Yes I do.

We should make a religion for them, don't allow anyone who hasn't heard their songs in

People who market their music can't use their faces because the public are like "ew they're ugly oh no :::((( that means their music sucks too, ugly=talentless"
So yeah, I was being sarcastic so that I could point out how ****** the music market is.
