Background[edit | edit source]

In 12th April 2012, The Daft Club forum user Thomas Bangalter made a post on the thread asking how to rip the content of a VHS containing four TV advertisements and an EPK (Electronic Press Kit) in high quality.[1] There was no sign of these ads ever being shown to the public, due to the little interest by fellow posters.

Later in same year, YouTuber fullmetalanbu posted a video of his VHS collection, which included the VHS case and tape with the four ads on it. He also uploaded some of the ads off of the tape on to YouTube, though one ad that was not uploaded was a Winter Olympics spot, which featured their song Harder Better Faster Stronger.
