When we saw how lush the ad for Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” was, DAD has assumed that a video had already been shot. In a recent feature with The Guardian, Nile Rodgers confirmed that the “Get Lucky” music video had been shot in Los Angeles last month:
Last month, when the band were filming the video for Get Lucky in Los Angeles, Rodgers says he realised that the dancers didn’t really know what they were listening to.
“Somebody called out, ‘Wow, what kind of music is that?’” Rodgers recalls. “I didn’t hesitate, I said, ‘disco!’ And they all screamed back, ‘Yeah!’. It was like they’d found something mythical that they’d heard about but didn’t know. There was an organic connection between the kids and the music. At the end they were literally weeping. I’ve seen those moments. I’ve been that guy – and it was for real.”
Maybe this was shot around the time they did their photoshoot at the Sheats Goldstein Residence. We don’t have much else in the way of info (especially the all-important premiere date), but let the speculation begin. Will it essentially be the full version of what we saw in the SNL ad? What else could be added – just a full performance, or something more?
