    Well, that's one way to launch an album. Daft Punk threw a massive record release bash in the rural town of Wee Waa, Australia (population: 2000) in honor of their latest effort, Random Access Memories. Though they didn't show up themselves, the band had a giant disco dance floor set up as part of the 79th annual Wee Waa Show, and, judging by the various 10-second cell phone videos, fans were rewarded with a laser extravaganza featuring the thumping tunes of RAM. Watch the flyover of the festival site below:



    The "Road To Wee Waa" YouTube channel tracked the band's infiltration of the tumbleweed town prior to their festival. Check out the beginnings of Daft fever in Wee Waa:



    The masks permeate the town, and it starts to look like that episode of Doctor Who with the Cybermen:



    Things reach a whole new level of creepy when schoolkids get Daft:



    Dancing telescopes? They have that, too:
