They might be one of today's hottest acts, but French electro pioneers Daft Punk aren't above the law and must take off their helmets at the airport just like anyone else.

Caught by the spying eye of TMZ, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter were filmed minding their own business at the airport, but mask-free. Dubbed "severely disappointing" by the tabloid source, the duo's in fact looking sharp as ever.

The story was also reported as Daft Punk's very first uncovering, which is hardly the truth. The footage does however bring the duo's latest unmasked photos, you can check it out below.

In related news, the band's Spotify streaming scored an impressive 205% leap following the latest Grammy triumph. AsĀ USA Today reports, other guitar-driven acts whose streaming numbers have gone up after the Grammys include Paul McCartney and Metallica with 126 and 63-percent jumps, respectively.

    I'm not really a fan but the media annoys me when they do stuff like this, it's like when they try find out who The Stig is from Top Gear,it's part of the fun, leave it alone.

    Similarly with Lordi, their fans once went nuts at a magazine for trying to expose Lordi's real faces.

    How many people will actually care about this in the end: zero I mean, I'm no superfan, but their music is solid enough that revealing their faces won't make it any worse or better. It's not like we haven't known names through their career.

    They don't like public attention on who they are underneath their helmets. Can't the media just leave them alone and let them have their privacy. Privacy is the only reason they wear the awesome outfits anyway

    Wouldn't it make sense for them to just not wear helmets in public places like this? No one would know it was them..

    I'm pretty sure they didn't try to walk through with the helmets on. Just journalists creating a fuss over nothing.

    There's already been early pictures of them if you wanted to see them unmasked. They clearly don't really enjoy being in the public appearance or not so kind of a dick move to just jump for the camera as soon as you see their faces. But I expect nothing less from TMZ.

    Who the **** cares? Some overrated piece of crap that doesnt hold a candle even to other electronic acts, let alone the entire music industry.

    I don't understand why people are so interested in seeing a masked figure unmasked. Same with slipknot, kiss (back in the day!) etc. When you do finally see then, surprise surprise A)they look like normal guys and B)you don't recognise them anyway. Not like they were secretly someone famous all this time.

    TMZ. More like sucking on celebrities d!cks with an annoying voice. The other night it was on TV in the break room and the douche kept saying "The Biebs". How do people watch this sh!t?

    There were already photos of them without helmets early when they first started. I don't know why people make a big deal out of it. The robot thing is a separate persona, an act. Don't ruin it.
