Daft Punk’s brilliant merchandise-marketing brain trust is doing something that is turning heads, and turning back clocks, to the 1970′s. With clever retro copy, an aged visual aesthetic and overall 70′s chic, one could say this is one of those moments when the advertising perhaps actually outsells the product itself.
