If you think you’re going to be up all night to get lucky, you may want to keep some special Daft Punk condoms on hand.

That’s right, Daft Punk condoms exist.

The French disco-reviving robot duo teamed up with condom company Durex to create their own special brand of "Get Lucky" condoms, the U.K. music magazine NME reports.

The condom box cover uses the single cover for Daft Punks’ chart-dominating hit track, "Get Lucky," off their critically acclaimed and commercially successful fourth album "Random Access Memories." The image shows silhouettes of the robots, Pharrell and Nile Rodgers, who are featured on the track, behind a blazing red sun.

Durex has been promoting the Daft Punk inspired rubbers by sending samples to DJs. Earlier this week, Diplo, the mastermind behind the electronic dancehall project Major Lazer, posted a picture of an open packet on his Instagram account with the caption, "Thank god I had those dfat punk condoms last night."

Pitchfork reports, it is unclear if the condoms will be available to the general public.

As NME reports, the duo is also working to create their own line of action figures with Bandai and Japan’s SH Figuarts. The product description says the toys were "crafted with meticulous attention to detail - [the] helmet area employs a shiny metallic finish and clear parts for enhanced realism." They also will have "advanced SH Figuarts articulation and seven sets of left/right interchangeable hand parts for recreation of dynamic posing."
