Curious What's Underneath Daft Punk's Robot Helmets?

Jan 28 2014 - 3:28pm

We've already gone over everything about the Grammys [1] there is to know, but at the end of the night, one question still hung in our minds. They graced the winners list [2] three times and got everyone on their feet with an epic performance of "Get Lucky," but we couldn't help but wonder: why is Daft Punk determined to keep those helmets on? And furthermore, what's underneath?

As luck would have it, we've got an answer. Last year, during an interview with GQ Magazine [3], the duo stated that their helmets were part of the fantasy and totally intertwined with their musical persona. But that doesn't quite quench our curiosity, does it? We did a little digging to give you a glimpse at the faces underneath the helmets, and, well, the results are remarkably limited. Nevertheless, between a Facebook slip-up, an awesome photography blog [4], a trip to a Miami beach, and a gas station outing, the mystery has been solved. Check out our findings below.

This photo — of the duo playing Champagne pong — went completely viral when The Knocks, a fellow electronic artist, posted it to their Facebook page. Even though they took it down almost immediately, it wasn't fast enough to keep it from making its way around the net.
