  2. Unfortunately the DVD is not available in stores!

    Perhaps if you go on YouTube and search under Daft Punk you may bump into some information in the comments.

  4. Here’s the link…


    Daft Punk actually said the reason they didn’t have a DVD was because there would be better fan-made footage avaliable online. It’s free.
