Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” is the undisputed song of the summer. The French dance duo’s single, which features R&B singer Pharrell Williams, is filled with breezy beats and a rhythm that makes you want to dance and, well, get lucky. Now the group has teamed up with condom maker Durex to make sure that those who want to make this their lucky summer, do it safely.

Durex has crafted a line of specialty condoms featuring the recognizable cover art of Daft Punk, Pharrell and Nile Rodgers playing in front of the smoldering sun from the chart-topping single off of Daft Punk’s latest album, Random Access Memories. This isn’t the first time that a musical group has branched out into branded birth control. 50 Cent, U2, and Kiss have all produced condoms with their band’s names on them. Unsurprisingly, pop singer Ke$ha took it a step further. She produced a condom emblazoned with her face, which she shot out into the audience of her concerts.

While it’s unclear how fans of both safe sex and Daft Punk can purchase the contraceptives, Durex has been sending out sample packs of the prophylactics to DJs, and the word is getting out. Earlier this week, DJ/producer Diplo posted a photo of the condoms on Instagram with the caption, “Thank god I had those daft punk condoms last night.”
