Emmanuel Macron forced Trump to sit through a Daft Punk cover band

A recent post on Pitchfork brought this delightfully horn-heavy marching band medley to our attention and we have to admit that it kind of makes us want entire Daft Punk albums performed in this manner.

The medley included early hits likes "Digital Love" and "Harder Better Faster Stronger" as well as more recent tracks like their Grammy award winning legendary single, "Get Lucky".

Trump joined French President Emmanuel Macron for a day of celebrations on France's most famous public holiday, commemorating the storming of the Bastille fortress in 1789, a turning point in the French Revolution.

The Dow rose to a record high close while USA stocks kept their upward momentum on Wednesday following Yellen's comments. Bank of America ( BAC.N ), Goldman Sachs ( GS.N ) and Morgan Stanley ( MS.N ) all are due to report results next week.

The performance has gone down a treat on social media, and President Macron looked like he was absolutely loving it, as no doubt everyone else watching was. You can watch it below - and keep an eye out for how Macron reacts compared to Trump. Unsurprisingly, it's entirely the sort of fun Pres. Donald Trump does not understand.

Pretty sure Donald Trump has no idea who Daft Punk are.
