The Daftest Punks around: our favourite ‘Get Lucky’ tributes

Posted at 3:30 pm, May 15, 2013 in Music & Nightlife

This year’s biggest ear worm has not only been topping the UK singles chart, but racking up a serious amount of hits on Youtube. If you’re thinking it’s Pharrell’s fabulous sequinned jacket on April’s Saturday Night Live ad that’s been attracting all the traffic, think again.

From a one-man-band cover of ‘Get Lucky’, in which young George Barnett takes on this summer’s biggest hit with a cowbell and toy car (see above), to a ten-minute-long 8-bit version of the track, which is undoubtedly the sound of Super Mario throwing shapes at a disco-themed club night, forget Williams and Rodgers, and those two French blokes wearing the flashy motorbike helmets, the newest stars of ‘Get Lucky’ are the Daft Punk fans.

Check out all of our favourite Daft Punk tribute videos, along with more of our favourite Daft duo homages. Read our review of Daft Punk’s ‘Random Access Memories’ (released Mon May 20) now.
