There’s a terrible ripoff of a Daft Punk costume in Party City’s Halloween commercial

Daft Punk has invaded mainstream culture with “Get Lucky”, so I guess it was to be expected that the Robots’ trademark outfit would be a hot commodity for Halloween 2013. I first saw this Party City commercial while watching re-runs of Roseanne over the weekend and did a double take at the DJ spinning the terrible Karaoke version of “Thriller”. Obviously, there’s some discrepancy between Party City’s version and the real McCoy — why the fuck is there a feather in his helmet!? — but I’m not the only one to make the Daft Punk connection. Unfortunately, the costume doesn’t appear to be available for purchase online, and I’m sure as hell not visiting an actual Party City for the sheer risk of spending too much money on fake weaponry. Sorry, Sami.
