The funk is strong with this one in Darth Punk – The Funk Awakens

You may not readily recognize the names of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel, but I’m sure you’ve heard of their alter egos as Daft Punk. Their music is infectious and has been a staple in the EDM and nerd community. Hell, the soundtrack they produced for Tron Legacy was beyond phenomenal. So what can be better than Daft Punk? Throw a little Star Wars in there and you have Darth Punk, with the 2 best bad boys of the series, Darth Vader and Boba Fett.

The music video chronicles their chase to convert a Jedi to the Dark Side. I absolutely love it, because there are so many nods to both Star Wars and Daft Punk, of which I’m a fan of both. From the lightsabers, the light-up helmets and shoes to DJ Gonk and classic cars hitting Lightspeed, this video is amazing. Check it out for yourself below.

And if you’re wondering what happened just prior to the events of the music video, check out the prequel video below.
