President Scowls During French Army's Amazing Daft Punk Tribute

On a bright day in Paris, both presidents watched as USA and French soldiers marched in happy unison on what was also the 100th anniversary of the day American troops entered World War I. The event also included a fun Daft Punk medley, courtesy of a military band.

The French have always been patriotic when it comes to music, and this year they made a decision to celebrate Bastille Day by having the French Army perform a medley of hits by electronic duo - and national heroes - Daft Punk, including the number one classic "Get Lucky". "Macron forcing Trump to sit through a Daft Punk medley is so fantastically French", BuzzFeed reporter Ryan Broderick wrote on Twitter. Based on the footage, it's seems safe to assume that one of them is a much bigger Daft Punk fan than the other.

Originally performed with Pharrell Williams on Daft Punk's Random Access Memories, "Get Lucky" was described by Diffuser's Amy Sciarretto back then as "an elegant and stylish song with a looped beat that could inspire even the staunchest wallflower to get up and dance".

The celebration might have been better appreciated by Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who is more familiar with the French electronic duo. But so far, Americans don't know much about which tunes Trump likes. Unsurprisingly, it's entirely the sort of fun Pres. Donald Trump does not understand. He's also said his favorite song is a 1969 hit by Peggy Lee Called "Is That All There Is?" which Genius described as a list of "successive disillusionments with life, punctuated by a proto-YOLO chorus".

Nevertheless, the least he could have done was cracked a smile or two.
