Very French marching band performs Daft Punk to our nonplussed president

Bastille Day is a national French holiday commemorating the historic revolution that led to what is known as the modern day France.

A pleased French president Emmanuel Macron watched on, while several assembled guests and domestic and foreign dignitaries joined him on stage.

A marching military band performed classical pieces including a tribute to the city of Nice, struck previous year by a terror attack, and "Nissa La Bella", according to The Local, before bursting into a melody of hits by native electronic duo Daft Punk.

At one point, the French Army's marching band took center stage, and instead of playing more traditional songs, performed an upbeat medley of Daft Punk's biggest hits, peaking with "Get Lucky".

The ruling, made late on Thursday, came after the Paris prosecutor called for the magazine to be removed from sale. A French journalist's union, SNJ, condemned the prosecutor's request, warning that it was a curb on press freedom.


Among some of the other notes we got from this unique medley were "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger", "Digital Love" and "One More Time" - but Trump didn't seem to enjoy any of them.

The celebration might have been better appreciated by Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who is more familiar with the French electronic duo. Unsurprisingly, it's entirely the sort of fun Pres. Donald Trump does not understand.
