Daft Punk vs. Adam Freeland Commemorate the Inauguration of Barack Obama

In honor of today's event, DJ Adam Freeland remixes Daft Punks "Aerodynamic" - the result "Aer-Obama."

The stop motion, animated, mixed media video is the first project from directing team GOLD via Greendot Films. GOLD is composed of directors Richard Farmer and Sinuhe Xavier. Farmer was formerly of acclaimed directing team Happy. Enjoy!

"For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus - and non-believers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth; and because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation, and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace." Barack Obama 1.20.09
