Daft Punk Shoot Down Rumors of Reunion at 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris

Fans of Daft Punk holding their breath for a reunion are now gasping for air after the robots denied rumors of a reunion at the 2024 Summer Olympics.

In a recent interview on the French public radio channel France Inter, Thomas Jolly, the artistic director of the Olympics' opening ceremony in Paris, discussed the possibility of a reunion.

"It would be very happy if they were in this ceremony," he said. "We can't not think about it."

Towards the end of the interview, however, Jolly came clean and admitted he "lied a little about Daft Punk." A report by the French newspaper Le Parisien then poured gasoline on the rumors after citing an anonymous source, who said the legendary electronic music duo met with the Olympic planning committee "several months ago."

A representative for the robots ultimately refuted the unfounded rumor in a statement provided to Rolling Stone, but not before it reached a fever pitch among the Daft Punk faithful.

"This is a rumor and not true," the rep told RS.

Jolly then backpedaled in the wake of Daft Punk's denial, taking to X (formerly Twitter) to share a statement of his own.

After discussing a possible presence at the ceremony, the group's decision is not to participate," he wrote. "I respect this decision and apologize for the ambiguity of my comments."
