Trump unamused by French marching band's Daft Punk medley

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

Yes, it's as tragic as it sounds.


The band blast through a mix of the electronic duo's hits, including One More Time and Get Lucky, and it is really rather brilliant. In attendance for the final medley was French president Emmanuel Macron, various dignitaries and a visiting president Donald Trump who seemed a bit surprised by the music he potentially recognized.

And now we can add "popular culture" and "fun" to the list of things lacking in Trump's pretty dry fountain of knowledge.


July 14 is Bastille Day (aka la Fête nationale), marking the storming of the Bastille in 1789 - a key moment in the French Revolution.

During the celebration, Macron looked like he was having a whale of a time, proudly looking upon his fellow French men and women as they bashed out the medley and moved in flawless formation in front of the crowds.


Another said: "Do you think this visit was actually just so Macron could troll Trump and subliminally call him a "Daft Punk"?"
