Daft Punk don't do music videos, so here are some Daft Punk music videos

Daft Punk's first two music videos - the one with the dog-man and the one with the dancers on a staircase - were incredible. Since then, though, they seem to have gone off the idea. All the songs for Discovery were accompanied by scenes from an anime called Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem, which looked like a dodgy pirate copy of cartoon Battle Of The Planets.

They started making a video for Get Lucky but lost interest after 90 seconds, and there's no sign of any other footage for the Random Access Memories album.

But stepping bravely into the breach comes American Vogue magazine, who have turned their photoshoot with the robots into a pseudo-video for Give Life Back To Music. It features the duo and supermodel Karlie Kloss catching a New York cab. AS IF THEY DON'T HAVE THEIR OWN SPACESHIP.

Elsewhere, a clearly drunk Florence "+ the machine" Welch has been filmed performing Get Lucky with professional wedding band Sourberry. While drinking tequila shots.

But my favourite (apart from the nine-minute loop of Ron Swanson dancing to Get Lucky) is still this groovalicious fan video for Lose Yourself To Dance. Dig those flares.

Maybe Lady Gaga should take note - there's no need to deplete your bank balance creating ambitious mini movies about the struggle between art and commerce and sexuality and haircuts. All you need to do is create the most talked-about album of the year and sit back while everyone else does the work for you. Easy.
