'SNL' rocked by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, mysterious Daft Punk ad
By Billboard Staff,  Billboard

Those watching last night’s episode of "Saturday Night Live" got an unexpected treat in the form of a 15-second, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it ad by French dance duo Daft Punk.

Find: When is Justin Timberlake back as 'SNL' host?

The brief trailer, featuring a sparkling Daft Punk logo and the pair’s famous robot masks, was soundtracked by a disco-tinged groove that appears to be new music.

Daft Punk, who recently announced its alliance with Columbia Records, have all but confirmed that they will have a new album in the spring, which is rumored to include collaborations with legendary disco producer Giorgio Moroder, producer/Chic co-founder Nile Rodgers and Feist collaborator Chilly Gonzales, among others.

The main musical moments from the Kevin Hart-hosted "SNL" came in the form of another funky pair, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who made their debut on the show performing energetic versions of "Can’t Hold Us" and their chart-topping ode to ballin’ on a budget, "Thrift Shop." Watch "Thrift Shop" with Wanz singing the hook below:
