It’s finally happened. The Dark Side has become privy to the power of daft beats and impeccable fashion sense. Thanks to Infectious Designer’s Brian Curtin, Darth Punk is now a thing…
“One day Vader and Fett will recruit for the the dark side, disguised as an electronic music duo… they will be arresting ears and administering intergalactic rhythm and beats. The Rebels won’t stand a chance. This is their music video, featuring ‘Dj Gonk.'”
Featuring your favorite antagonists from the Star Wars Saga, “The Funk Awakens” music video is a glorious parody of science fiction and the legendary house artists. From the onset, it seems the duo aims to swoon a pretty lady into joining the Dark Side utilizing the entire assortment of galactic essentials, including TIE fighter skateboards, lightsabers, and even an R2-BoomBox. And, as you might expect from the galaxy’s most wanted, Daft Boba and Darth Punk end up pulling a total Sith move during the epic dance battle, leaving the woman with little choice but to join their ranks. Bangalter and De-Homem Christo will weep tears of joy when they see this.
