Daft Punk's "Contact" Samples The Sherbs' "We Ride Tonight": Watch The Video For The Latter

"Contact," the closing track on Daft Punk's Random Access Memories, is quite the epic space odyssey, thanks in part to a sample of astronaut Eugene Cernan describing what appears to be a UFO. The other sample the song contains is from "We Ride Tonight," a 1982 synth-rock single by Australian band The Sherbs (aka Sherbet aka some other name I can't be fucked to take the three seconds to look up right now.)

I stumbled upon the video for "We Ride Tonight" the other night and can't get over how cheeseball-fantastic it is. The first 40 seconds are basically Daft Punk in a nutshell.
