No, you’re not listening to Daft Punk’s new single right now.

Just to be clear, this is not the final, official version of Daft Punk’s new single, “Get Lucky”.

Nor is this.

Rather, you’re listening to songs built on the same 90-second loop that appears in the group’s recent advertisements for the album. Notice, for example, how the bridge at the 1:46 mark just loops right back to the beginning. This happens multiple times throughout, especially at 3:18, where it literally segues from the album’s original SNL commercial to the robotic, latter portion of this past weekend’s second commercial.

While some synth strings do surface towards the end, that’s hardly any indication it’s a legit recording. In fact, many more complicated effects are often found on Daft Punk fakes, which are consistently created by dedicated fans. Um, does anyone remember the Tron debacle? Or, The Third Twin?

Let’s see how Friday shapes up — or, whatever comes of this truck from Japan.
