Music video[]

The music video for "Burnin'" pays tribute to Chicago house producers that Daft Punk found inspiration in. The party scene in the video features DJ Sneak, Roger Sanchez, Derrick Carter, Roy Davis Jr., Paul Johnson, Robert Armani and DJ Hyperactive. Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk also make brief cameo appearances in the video as people at the party; Bangalter wears sunglasses and a long-haired, dark wig, while de Homem-Chisto appears in a red suit, sunglasses and blonde wig.[1] The video was shot in Chicago using an office building at One South Wacker Drive as the setting.[2]

The video begins with a boy playing with a toy fire truck in a suburb while his father cooks steak on a barbecue. The scene oscillates from this setting to a party scene within a skyscraper, in which a fire spreads while nobody at the party seems to notice. A team of firefighters eventually alert the party attendants of the fire and escort them from the building. It is suggested that the boy and his fire truck are somehow connected to the firefighter rescue and evacuation in the video.
