Daft Punk not only want you to get lucky this summer, but want to make sure you stay safe doing it.

The French electronic duo has teamed up with condom brand Durex to release a “Get Lucky” brand of prophylactics, according to NME. The box features the “Get Lucky” single art of Daft Punk, Nile Rodgers and Pharrell standing in front of the sun, which is a shot from the song’s video.

There’s no word yet on when the condoms will go on sale to the general public, but in a slick advertising move, Durex has been sending DJs free samples. And it seems they’ve got a fan in Diplo, who posted a photo of the opened box to Instagram with the message, “Thank god I had those Daft Punk condoms last night.” He might have just come up with the perfect tagline.

Along with their new condoms, the guys are also hawking a line of action figures.

According to Consequence of Sound, the six-inch figurines are modeled after the duo’s latest outfits for Random Access Memories. The toys were created by Bandai and Japan’s S.H. Figuarts and were reportedly created with help from the guys — Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo — themselves. Fans in North America can pick themselves up a set of Daft Punk figures (each are sold separately, not as a duo) on December 27.

In other Daft Punk news, Nile Rodgers revealed that he would be reuniting with the band for another musical collaboration.

Rodgers told DJJAZZtv that he’d recently found a couple of unfinished Chic tracks in the archives of the Warner Music tape library. He’d like to complete the unfinished tracks from his old band — and says the guys of Daft Punk have already offered their services.

“Daft Punk wants to do at least one of them with me, so that should be very cool,” Rodgers explained. “Because they respect the music, they understand.”
