Did Daft Punk Plagiarize their TRON Video? (Watch)

We've received a tip from the good folk at Delicious Vinyl records that the "new" Daft Punk video for their "Derezzed" (from their ridiculously overhyped TRON: Legacy soundtrack) might not be, how shall we say this, completely original. It seems someone did a shot by shot comparison of the "Derezzed"/TRON video and a clip from Delicious Vinyl's far more obscure 2008 project RMXXOLOGY and found, well, some pretty curious similarities. What do you think?:

What do you think? Coincidence or something else...?
