They're up all night to get lucky, but David Wong looks like he stayed up all night to get that Daft Punk cover recorded.

Violinist David Wong has created a huge YouTube hit by covering Daft Punk's no. 1 single 'Get Lucky', originally featuring Pharrell Williams and Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers.

Wong's cover sees the violinist using programmed loops to create a musical bed over which he plays several improvised variations on the song's melody.

Released at the end of April, 'Get Lucky' was the comeback single for the popular French dance duo, and has sold over a million copies so far.
