Daft Punk's 'Instant Crush' video is just the latest in an eclectic line-up of the group's 'Random Access Memories' music videos. Not your typical love story of boy-meets-girl, the video has a revamped story-line of mannequin-meets-mannequin. The lady mannequin is dressed in traditional colonial garb, whereas the gentleman mannequin dons an American Revolutionary Soldier uniform. The unconventional love story begins when the two are placed across the room from one another in a museum, and continues to capture how their lust grows into genuine caring and affection.

The music video is interspersed with scenes of Julian Casablancas, of Stroke's fame, getting down in an '80s groove -- complete with a British Invasion jacket to boot. This video follows the debut video in the Random Access Memories series, titled 'Lose Yourself to Dance.'
