UPDATE (7/11): Bummer. Durex told Mixmag that they had no involvement or deal with the group. "There is no Durex promotion or partnership with Daft Punk in the UK or any other markets and Durex are not posting free packs to the world’s top DJs as suggested." Diplo, you prankster! 

Have you ever listened to 73-year-old disco legend Giorgio Moroder tell his life story on album and thought, "Man, I NEED to have sex to that right now with some sort of related protection?" Durex Condoms understands.

According to NME, Daft Punk have teamed up with the manufacturer to produce condoms with the "Get Lucky" (get it?) artwork emblazoned on the packaging. So far, it appears the promotional item has only gone to select DJs—Diplo Instagrammed a pic with the caption "Thank god I had those daft punk condoms last night"—so no word if you too can make terrible "Get Lucky" jokes at the expense of your bored significant other.

Last week, Bandai and Japan’s S.H. Figuarts announced that a line of Daft Punk action figures would be available for sale this winter, while Daft Punk-branded Coca-Cola bottles are available wherever useless sh-t is sold.

Disco pioneer Nile Rodgers, the man behind the guitar lick on "Get Lucky," revealed that more collaborations with Daft Punk are on the way. According to NME, Rodgers recently unearthed old demos featuring contributions from Chic members Bernard Edwards, Tony Thompson and others that he plans on fleshing out with the French duo for future release.
