Daft Punk's legacy will live on forever, especially when their biggest hits are remade using Tesla coils.

To achieve this level of musicality, Fabricio H. Franzoli from the Franzoli Electronics YouTube channel meticulously tweaks the coils' phase, pulse width, and firing frequency of the energy from the coils. By doing so he's able to get them timed properly and formulate a song.

Franzoli has done a few electrifying Daft Punk covers with the Tesla coils, but he doesn't only perform music from the legendary robots. He also did a cover of a-ha's "Take on Me" (but dubbed it "TAKE on ELECTRICITY") using an "Easy-Flyback" driver, which is available on his website. That performance is achieved using the same methods as the Tesla coils: through programmed phase and firing frequency.

Check out the unique performance of "One More Time" below. Franzoli also recently did a Tesla coil cover of Daft Punk's "Around The World," which you can watch here.
