Daft Punk – Television Rules The Nation (Unreleased Music Video)

A music video was leaked on the internet, featuring a shortened version. The video is presented in a four-splitted screen. It also uses special effects, such as fuzzy movements and "echo" effects. The music video features Daft Punk (Thomas playing the electric guitar, while Guy-Man plays the drums) in a black stage, with only a few lights illuminating, while they move and play the song.

The video begins with Daft Punk moving their heads along the beats, then their start playing the song, as lights begins to illuminate the stage.

The video is very similar to the one of "Robot Rock", in which both are playing the same instruments.
