Unfortunately, internet condoms don't exist and the announcement of Daft Punk condoms went viral. It has now come to light, however, that previous reports of Daft Punk's collaboration with condom brand Durex are untrue. The manufacturers have denied any involvement with the product. A statement to Mixmag reads:

The makers of Durex are aware of reports that Durex has launched Daft Punk branded condoms following their hit single ‘Get Lucky’.

There is no Durex promotion or partnership with Daft Punk in the UK or any other markets and Durex are not posting free packs to the world’s top DJs as suggested.

While either Daft Punk or Durex could have propagated the hoax as a marketing stunt, the list of possibile culprits includes Diplo, who posted the original photograph on Instagram. Not willing to waste the publicity, though, the Durex statement added: "We do hope that by using Durex condoms the nation will continue to make sweet music together and have great sex."

Oh well. It was a beautiful dream while it lasted.
