You can call Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" many things — an unlikely Song of the Summer frontrunner, a record-setting smash, the most unlikely success of the duo's career, etc. — but whatever you do, don't call it disco ... at least not around Pharrell Williams.
"I don't know if it's a disco track; like, if you really think about it, it feels a little bit more, like, 'post,'" Williams told MTV News. "But if you consider all of the elements, and where it comes from, the feeling, it kind of feels like out of time, like it's not necessarily in a specific time. At least when I hear it."
Pharrell Never Expected 'Get Lucky' To Blow Up
"I mean, I thought it would do good, I didn't know it would be this; I didn't know it would be breaking records across the board, I had no idea," Williams said. "I just thought it would do well, because it felt great and it felt different, and you guys know I live for those types of things, to do things that are different. So the fact that it's been so explosive, and that the people chose to make it the phenomenon it is; the only thing we can say is thank y'all. I was with the robots yesterday, and, of course, they're super thankful too."
And speaking of logging quality time with the robots, is there a chance Williams might be joining Daft Punk on the road for a Random Access Memories tour? To be honest, he's not sure: turns out DP are more interested in the present ... y'know, just like Williams sings in "Get Lucky."
"They don't talk about future plans; they're all about the present, which has no ribbon," he laughed. "The masks are an extension of who they are as people ... they pretty much think that way regardless." [MTV News]

Earlier today, electronic music duo the Knocks posted a picture of far more famous electronic duo Daft Punk playing beer pong at the office of their record label, Columbia. Daft Punk are also known as Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, and also robots since they are almost never photographed without their trademark helmets.
The Knocks quickly deleted the pic and posted a status update that reads, "GUESS WE WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO POST THAT PIC :X" Of course, once something is on the internet, it is forever, and so, via Stacy Lambe's Tumblr, here it is:
I confirmed with someone who has spent time with them that it is indeed them. And they would have gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling bloggers. [Gawker]
