    Funny story...

    I was almost rail for The Faint and there was some Spanish speaking couple in front of me. I usually don't look at other people's phones when they're using them but the girl had an iPad (who the fuck brings iPads into festivals?) and it was kinda hard to ignore and not see what she was doing.

    So when the keyboardist made that joke, with their poor English they misinterpreted it and went nuts. Apparently the girl runs some sorta media site called Young Offenders and proceeded to tweet, instagram and vine the entire show with comments like "DAFT PUNK/THOMAS BANGALTER PLAYING WITH THE FAINT" I cringed every time I saw them do that. After the set, I mustered up the strength to tell them Daft Punk wasn't on the stage. The guy tried correcting me saying it was just Bangalter but I corrected him again. He seemed kinda bummed out and pretty embarrassed after going nuts on their site claiming something happened that really didn't.

    That's basically how my friend and her sister's FB pages were. I even asked if they were sure it wasn't a joke and they said yes. -_-

    A bit into their set (15 mins or so) they said something along the lines of "One of the guys from daft punk is on the keyboards tonight.......Bon Jour"

    No the R Kelly joke.....

    Unless that was it, which in that case, Ben Gibbard should stick to music.

    The R Kelly joke that The Postal Service made on weekend 2 was actually something like "R Kelly was supposed to play with us but decided to go with Phoenix." ..something like that.

    Fun story

    I was at the campsite winding down after Vampire Weekend when my friend comes by with a guy he just met, who told me someone just texted him saying Daft Punk is on stage with The Feint.

    I fucking sprint from the campsite to the mojave, ending up really disappointed.

    yeah something like this. My memory was something like "so we have this friend that was supposed to be our special guest, you may have seen him with phoenix last week, but he boned us" It felt like a joke on special guests in general, it was unclear whether he meant daft or r kelly.

    Ha, that's the first thing I thought of too, that insurance commercial. Here's video of The Faint and the joke:
