THE SECRET TO DAFT PUNK'S NEW ALBUM?
SCOTTSDALE'S ANDREW THE PIZZA GUY
As part of the unprecedented promotional push for French dance giants Daft Punk's soon-
to-be-released Random Access Memories album, the band has shared a number of short
films profiling the artists who have contributed to the LP such as Nile Rodgers, Todd
Edwards and Giorgio Moroder. These vignettes, a series dubbed "The Collaborators," have
given us a look at what the new album is all about.
Today, the folks at Funny or Die have posted a parody of The Collaborators featuring an
unsung hero of the Random Access Memories sessions - a Scottsdale, AZ pizza guy
named Andrew. This Padre's Pizza employee served up a $75 pie to The Robots and had this
to add about his encounter with Daft Punk, "It was like they captured everything that made
pizza great in the Seventies, and then completely made it their own. But at the same time,
y'know, this pizza is a modern masterpiece."
Andrew went on to claim the duo said "without me, none of [the recording of the album]
would be possible." Of course not all is at it seems for Andrew.
So without further ado, let's meet Andrew The Pizza Guy.
Daft Punk's long-awaited new album, Random Access Memories, is due out on May 21st.
