Daft Punk have called it quits, and they said goodbye with a video that’s as weird and mysterious as you might expect.
The duo shared an eight-minute video titled “Epilogue,” in which they appear in their usual robot costumes. They stand together in a desert landscape, until one takes off his jacket to reveal an energy pack inside. The other touches a button on the pack, causing the first guy to explode into flames as their moody song “Touch” plays in the background.

The Jonas Brothers reunion has hit a roadblock. The youngest brother, Nick Jonas, is returning to a solo career.
This coming weekend, Nick will guest host Saturday Night Live and perform a new song, “Spaceman.”
Because of Nick’s priorities, the Jonas Brothers nixed a new album. It had been available for pre-order. They recorded enough music last year, but they won’t release it if Nick can’t promote it.
A showbiz insider confirmed, (quote) “The Jonas Brothers’ reunion is effectively over for now. They had an album ready to go but then the pandemic happened. Realistically, it will be a while before they do music as a trio again.” (The Sun, UK)
