It’s Bastille Day today, France’s national day, and US president Donald Trump is the guest of honour.
While the occasion is usually a highly ceremonial affair, French president Emmanuel Macron’s first July 14 parade took a slightly unconventional turn, as he invited the Army band to perform a jazzy rendition of…
Daft Punk hits.
During the parade, the marching band created several formations on the Champs Elysees while taking on a medley of the French electronic duo’s tunes including One More Time, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, and Get Lucky.
The performance was wonderful.
Well, at least Macron seemed to think so – he looked on proud and couldn’t resist flashing a smile and bopping his head in approval.
Trump, on the other hand, had his arms crossed and appeared unfazed but did clap and offer a whistle at the end of the three-minute performance.
High-level trolling, or no?
