Who's in charge? Da Funk, obviously.

Or Ultraman.

It must be Pimp Cylon on the left; the double-breasted red velour zoot suit is far classier than the pink warmup jacket of drum machine programmer Rainbow GayBorg.

apparently skynet has taken over... but as far as this pic is concerned, red-suited-cylon gets my vote.

Well, it's about time Daft Punk appeared on the cover of "Cigar Aficionado" magazine.

Obviously Mr. Pink is in charge since he has the cigar. Also he wore a pink jacket over orange pants and under a rainbow helmet without getting sucked into an episode of "What Not to Wear." Can you imagine? "No, no, no, that jacket emphasizes the rectangular lines of your metallic cyborg hands. You need a sweater vest to round that out!"

The cigar is in charge.

Jared, it is a week bit frightening that you would impart a "What Not To Wear" reference....

TheOtherJennifer said...

"wee bit", doofus.

The Red Coat, on account of the chest forward thing. Though I paused about the cigar, but hey, the bomber jacket doesn't say authority.
( Oh get me, 'authority anywhere in this farce).

i vote for Imposing Red Suit. although if this was a vote on irony it would be much harder to pick.

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

Got to be the red suited Pimp Cylon. Damn, that's a nice jacket.

BeckEye said...

That robot on the right looks like it got dressed in the dark. Therefore, Red Robot is in charge.

Jillian said...

Yeah, the one in the snappy suit wins the day. Orange Pants is the sidekick.

It's always the tall guy.

Tucat said...

Robot in Red .

A Jaded Girl said...

Im voting for "Rainbow Gayborg" as Rhubarb Ranch so delicately put it. Simply because it makes me giggle

dguzman said...
