Daft Punk’s Human After All: Inspired by KITT, Knight Rider

The lyrics for the song and album title Human After All may likely have been inspired by this clip from the first episode of Knight Rider where KITT states, “After all, we’re only human, right?” which is creepy, since KITT is a robot. Human/robot–many themes which Daft Punk constantly explores, especially in Electroma. Check out all the scenes in the beginning intro to Knight Rider, with KITT driving in the desert-also very Electroma-like (replace the black Trans Am with the black Ferrari). Robot Rock!
