Released today by Funny or Die, GARY RICHARDS—also known as Los Angeles producer and DJ DESTRUCTO and the founder of HARD EVENTS, the world-renowned event and festival producer recognized for landmark festivals such as HARD SUMMER, HARD Day of the Dead and the three-day electronic music cruise Holy Ship!!!—guest stars in a hilarious video spoofing Daft Punk’s “The Collaborators” video series celebrating their highly anticipated album “Random Access Memories.” In the video, RICHARDS plays a disgruntled pizza place manager, who fires his pizza boy after falling for yet another Daft “Punk” by believing he has collaborated with the French duo on the most epic pizza concoction.
