French Army Marching Band Performs Daft Punk Medley for Bastille Day

Share

The French army has celebrated Bastille Day in the most patriotic way imaginable: with a full blown Daft Punk medley on the Champs Elysees.

Bastille Day plays host to the oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe, which President Donald Trump was lucky enough to witness on his trip to France.

As realization dawned on Macron during a rendition of "Get Lucky", his face lit up and he appeared to chuckle to himself while his neighbor looked on in seemingly bored silence. Trump, however, did not.

Trump, however, sat motionless with his arms folded, while his French counterpart smiled broadly throughout. The French army band made a decision to use their performance slot to commemorate another hometown treasure aka Daft Punk.

The French electronic duo may not necessarily mesh with Trump's tastes, as some of his favorite artists that the president has mentioned in the past include Peggy Lee, Neil Young, Frank Sinatra, and Tony Bennett. But so far, Americans don't know much about which tunes Trump likes.

Daft Punk, famed for wearing robot suits and not revealing their true identities, are one of France's most acclaimed dance music acts.

Also a fan of Aerosmith and Neil Young, Trump has previously argued that nobody should judge another's preferences.

His press secretary, Sean Spicer, may need to heed that advice. At one point he called the group "Daft Funk" and complained that they wore helmets while performing, according to Pitchfork.
