Watch French Marching Band's Zany Daft Punk Medley For Macron, Trump

Trump, who's now hanging out in France with President Emmanuel Macron, was watching the Bastille Day parade when the army casually performed a medley of French electro duo Daft Punk.

President Donald Trump's France visit came to an end on Friday with an appearance at a parade honoring Bastille Day.

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

The performance was part of this year's Bastille Day military parade in Paris, and included a number of the EDM duo's most iconic tracks including "Get Lucky", "One More Time" and "Harder Better Faster Stronger".

AFL executives resign after 'inappropriate relationships'
He will be replaced by the league's general manager of game development, and legal counsel, Andrew Dillon , on "an interim basis". I want a diverse and inclusive culture where employees are treated respectfully, fairly and represented at all levels.

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.

It's a hilarious scene caught on camera, but maybe not all that surprising given that Trump isn't known to have many interests apart from watching TV and playing golf.

Macron, who at 39 was surely at least a little familiar with Daft Punk's music, grinned in recognition at the rearranged club hits.
