More Robot Love

Yesterday’s post for the Spike Jonze short film “I’m Here” got me thinking about how much his characters resembled the Daft Punk robots.  The quirky and endearing qualities may be more than just coincidence.  In the late 90′s Spike Jonze directed a music video for Daft Punk called Da Funk that featured a character with a Dog Head that exhibits many of the same human traits found in his later robot characters.  Makes you wonder who influenced who.  This 2001 Gap ad directed by Paul Hunter featuring Daft Punk and Juliette Louis highlight the same quirky and endearing human qualities that make Spike’s characters so damn lovable.  Here’s to Robot Love.
