Daft Punk Gets Their Own Brand Of Coca-Cola, Records Coke Commercial

As Daft Punk continues to take over the world one song at a time, they will soon have their own brand of limited edition Coca-Cola bottles (as seen above). The set will be called, "Daft Punk x Coca-Cola Club Coke". 

You'll be able to grab these as soon as March 2011. So keep your eyes peel.

Daft Punk also recorded some fresh beats to pimp out their slick looking Coke bottles. Check it out below: 

UPDATE: So it appears that anything Daft Punk causes the cycle of the Tron fake scenrio all over again. We received contact from Spoka (the PR in charge of the Daft Coke project) and they have stated the following:

1. There is no official advertising or track created for the occasion. All videos, streams, mp3 relating this are fake or fan material (including the one above) No advertising on TV nor Radio.

2. Club Coke 2011 is a Coke creation, inspired by the Electronic Duo.

Daft Punk have actually produced something gorgeous and very exclusive on their side that will be revealed on daftcoke.com in May.

Looks like we'll have to wait til May to see what Daft Punk has in store.
