The group has done very little publicity to promote their "Random Access Memories" album and no television spots or live dates. But now, there are rumors that they will be appearing on Colbert's show.
A post on Colbert's website said: "Last night Stephen Colbert made a surprise appearance on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,' dancing his way onto the show, Stephen boogied-on down with Jimmy Fallon to Daft Punk's new single ‘Get Lucky' from their new album ‘Random Access Memory', before dancing his way back behind the blue curtain. Not as random as it seems, the bit is all to do with the upcoming appearance of Daft Punk on ‘The Colbert Report'
Food Porn, Fact Or Fooey: Taking A Photo Of Your Food Could Make It Taste Better?
Researchers (at University of Minnesota) claim taking a photo of your food and sharing it on social networks could improve its taste.
It puts you in the moment and in doing so, heightens your senses.
In fact, the study revealed that performing any ritual, such as raising a toast, improves the experience of eating.
Coffee Making Robots?
A company based in Austin, Texas has just installed its first fully automated coffee kiosk at the University of Texas campus.
The company claims that the robotic drink maker can "emulate the motions of a champion barista to precisely prepare specialty coffee drinks to your specifications."
Customers can order through a touchscreen or a smartphone app and track wait times to see when their cup will be ready.
Also, the company plans to make it possible for customers to schedule their orders, so a student on her way to class can have a latte waiting for her five minutes before she gets there.
Woman Has The Worlds Largest Afro
A Louisiana woman has is the owner of the world's largest afro.
The 37-year-old woman says her is 4 feet and 4 inches high, and it is inspiring women to ditch chemical straighteners and 'go natural'.
She believes her hair may have grown even bigger, but she cannot reveal its size until Guinness take an official measurement.
She explained, 'When my hair is stretched out to its complete length and pressed, it goes down to my butt. But I don't wear it like that because it looks weird.'
She spent the last 14 years growing her hair, and has won fans from Brazil to Italy.
** Her look does have its drawbacks: She often gets it caught in trees, car doors and people's earrings.
It can also take two days to wash and dry and is so big she struggles to see clearly out from beneath it - which means she cannot drive with her 'hair up'.
To get her hair ready for a night out she shampoos it and then uses up to five conditioners
Video Of The Day:
Today's video is of a real life Yogi bear... a smarter than your average bear story.. Check it out.
A BEAR not only ransacked a dumpster outside a Colorado Springs restaurant, it pulled the garbage bin 50 feet into the parking lot and flipped it over.
The hungry bear was caught on security camera making repeat visits to the back door of the Edelweiss Restaurant.
But on this particularly visit, the six-foot tall beast passes right by the recycling bin and goes straight for the restaurant's leftover food. And after a quick dig around, it wheels the entire container away...
If the bear returns, wildlife officers may have to tag and relocate it and, as a last resort, it may be euthanized.
BY THE WAY: The Edelweiss' signature dish is rouladen — top round steak pounded and rolled, stuffed with bacon, mustard, onions and pickle; covered in a dark gravy and accompanied by red cabbage and fried potatoes
