Daft Punk are officially on TikTok

Daft Punk have officially joined TikTok.

The duo's first video captioned: “Let’s rewind time, on TikTok,” features a fast-paced look at some of their most iconic moments — from 'Homework' to 'Get Lucky'

Followers quickly flooded to the page, posting comments enquiring: “What does this mean?” The official account doesn’t provide much hope of a reunion as the bio reads: “Daft Punk (1993 - 2021)”.

In just one day, the Robots' first video has reached over one million views — they have since posted another video celebrating their 25th anniversary of the album 1997 'Homework’.

The second video shows a quick clip from the Spike Jonze-directed 1997 video of the track ‘Da Funk’.

Alongside the TikToks, Daft Punk have launched a filter on the platform featuring their iconic hemlets — giving users the choice to be either Thomas Bangalter or Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo.

France24 claim that Daft Punk will be posting content to the account from their career between 1993 and 2011.

Earlier this year the duo teased their 5.3 million YouTube subscribers with a rare video revealing the storyboard behind the iconic ‘Around The World’ music video.

Such storyboards originally appeared on Daft Punk’s 1997-released D.A.F.T DVD alongside the original music video. The track landed on the pair’s most heralded record, ‘Homework’, which received a reissue in February for its 25th anniversary.
