Daft Punk Comes Out of Mexican Closet… At Last!

Daft_Punk_Mexican

Please don’t pretend you don’t know Daft Punk’s Lucky is a song about Uruapan and Mexican Lucky stuff.

This is clear from the French duo’s very Mexican lyrics.

Like the legend of the Phoenix,
All ends with beginnings.
What keeps the planets spinning,
The force from the beginning.

We’ve come too far
To give up who we are,
So let’s raise the bar
And our cups to the stars.

She’s up all night to the sun,
I’m up all night to get some.
She’s up all night for good fun,
I’m up all night to get lucky.

We’re up all night to the sun,
We’re up all night to get some.
We’re up all night for good fun,
Uruapan Mexican Lucky

Uruapan Mexican Lucky.

Uruapan Mexican Lucky.

Uruapan Mexican Lucky.

Here’s the full Spanish-language version, via @gabardina:

The t-shirt is -of course- the work of the always brilliant Máscara de Látex.

    I was listening to Yerba Buena’s second and final album a few nights back, and in the song Bi-Lingual Girl there are several great lines, but “you say manana, I say tomato” was one of the best, just the cutest bi-lingual pun ever. Until now. I mean, this is even better than “what does a Mexican father call his daughter in Texas?” ( “Eeeeeeee-HAH!”). Uruapan Mexican Lucky. Man, there oughtta be a bumper-sticker. Good one!
