Daft Punk is known for the shiny helmets that have become ubiquitous calling cards for the successful group. Because of their fondness for these helmets, it was a natural fit for them to promote a Formula 1 racecar. At the Le Grand Prix de Monaco, Daft Punk decided to accompany the car and crew out to the track, giving the team a boost while quite possibly intimidating the competition. After all, who is really messing with the shiny helmets? More pictures are below.

Daft Punk's appearance at this race marks their first public appearance since releasing their latest album, Random Access Memories.
