As much as I love the French electronic duo Daft Punk
and their great funky single "Get Lucky" (May 2013) I have to call into question the strong similarities of a track called "Get Out" (Posted April 2011 on Soundcloud) by an unknown French trio by the name of Milks. This gem was just brought to my attention by Eleanor. I see there are a few videos on YouTube pointing this out but I'm surprised this hasn't become a bigger deal on the internet. "Get Lucky" is also co-written by Pharrell Williams who has made a few appearances on this site (links below).
Listen for yourself!

I think maybe the chorus melody works even better with this comparison:

Eleanor suggested the following and it's pretty damn interesting. Check out this snippet of prodigal guitar player Zack Kim
performing an original guitar track called "Robot Dance". Even the name is somewhat coincidental. This is from a fan channel on YouTube so I can't really verify much other than that it was uploaded on December 22, 2011. Full video is below.

I think this compares best with the"Get Lucky" pre-chorus:
