YMMV: Daft Punk's Electroma
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Subverted. Throughout the movie, there are brief flashes of fire that seem to contribute nothing. Though it is revealed to be one robot slowly burning to death at the end of the film.
    • Played straight however is the random shot of the vagina-looking structure while they're walking through the desert.
  • Fan Nickname: Most fans refer to the duo as Thomas and Guy-Man, due to the fact that they resemble the pair during their Human After All era since they share Cool Helmets and jackets.
    • The film title is often shortened to simply "Electroma".
  • Fan Vid: Funnily enough, it's a popular thing to make music videos by taking scenes from the movie and matching them to songs from the Human After All album. One in particular, "Prime Time of Your Life", seems to have more views than the actual video.
  • Uncanny Valley: The human masks the main characters get. They try to resemble humans, but they just look wrong.
  • Vindicated by History: While not exactly disliked, the film did get rather mixed reaction. Nowadays, it remains a popular midnight-showing movie.
