''Daft Punk's Electroma'' is a 2006 arthouse film directed by... well... Music/DaftPunk. After the music videos for ''Fresh'', ''Robot Rock'' and ''Technologic'', which were also directed by Daft Punk themselves, they moved onto shooting footage for their music video of ''Human After All'', but along the way, it was extended into a complete feature film being an unplanned extension of filming videos for the entire Human After All album. However, aside from the [[CoolHelmet famous helmets of the characters]] and ''Daft Punk'' being written on the main characters' jackets, the story has zero relation to any previously established continuity whatsoever.

''Electroma'' is the duo’s third film, following ''D.A.F.T: a Story about Dogs, Androids, Firemen, and Tomatoes'' and the hour-long anime/music video ''{{Anime/Interstella5555}}''. Initially shown at the Cannes Film Festival, it was later shown at independent film screenings in France, Canada, Australia and the US with mixed reviews. Despite this, many viewings tended to be sold out quickly.
