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.

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.

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.

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.

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
