A New York-based electronic music duo named The Knocks posted a picture of another electronic music duo to their Facebook page. That duo is better known as Daft Punk and it caused the Internet to go crazy, thinking they were finally seeing the guys without their trademark masks.
The Knock deleted the pic and the group spent most of the day on Twitter pointing out that they didn’t take the pic, aren’t signed to Columbia/Sony Records (where the photo was taken), and that the pic was already available on the Internet.
The reason everyone is so crazy about this is that no-one knows what Daft Punk looks like anymore, since all their recent promotional pictures have shown them with their “robot” masks.
Daft Punk wear the helmets because they don’t want to be celebrities. They appear in public their own names and don’t get bothered. Check out the pic below:
