Daft Punk - Around the World

 The video featured robots walking around in circles, tall athletes going up and down the stairs, women dressed as synchronized swimmers, and skeletons and mummies dancing to the beat of the song. Each character in the video served as a visual presentation of the song.

The four characters represented a different instrument or part. For instance, the robots depicted the vocals, the athletes symbolized the descending and ascending pattern of the bass guitar, and the disco girls characterized the keyboard. Moreover, the skeletons represented the guitar’s melody while the mummies symbolized the drum machine. (text from Director-File)
