Daft Punk to appear on <em>The Colbert Report</em> next week

The political satirist will host the helmeted duo on August 6.

As Huffington Post points out, Colbert crashed Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night, dancing to Daft Punk’s ubiquitous ‘Get Lucky’. Rather than some strange bit of late night synergy, it turns out that the appearance was a promotional stunt in advance of the Punks’ appearance on Colbert’s show.

Colbert fan site Colbert News Hub reports that the host revealed the news to his audience during a taping on July 25; he’ll be dancing to ‘Get Lucky’ with various guests in the lead up to the appearance.

No word on whether Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo will be performing or interviewed, but be sure to tune in next Tuesday (August 6). Watch Colbert dance with Fallon (and interrupt J Mascis) below.
