Daft Punk fans may enjoy Sony’s latest Playstation 4 promo.

sonyps4unboxingIn “The Official PS4 Unboxing Video,” Sony parodies the video for Daft Punk’s unboxing of its most recent album, Random Access Memories.

Complete with a nearly-identical dark underground sci-fi control room, flashing lights and another mystery man (Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida), the advertisement parodies Daft Punk’s video for a creative spin on your ordinary unboxing video.

The PS4 hits shelves this Friday, Nov. 15, while the Xbox One arrives exactly one week after that.
