I found the college kids react to Daft Punk video rather funny. They seemed totally unaware of Daft Punks previous success. They proceeded to make statements claiming Daft Punk would become huge. Which of course they already are. Maybe its only since their Pharrell duet that they became successful within American popular music?
Nah, that's just youthful naivety. Homework was just as big here when it debuted. Everyone knows Around the World & Da Funk! Keep in mind how long they take to put out new albums, and how different each album sounds. Those guys would have been little kids when One More Time & Hard, Better, Fast, Stronger were big.
