France's Military Band Surprised Everyone With This Daft Punk Medley

It was unclear whether US President Donald Trump, guest of honour for the ceremony, was familiar with the 2013 global hit featuring US singer Pharrell Williams or other Daft Punk songs which formed part of the final medley.

As realization dawned on Macron during a rendition of "Get Lucky", his face lit up and he appeared to chuckle to himself while his neighbor looked on in seemingly bored silence.

Carrie Fisher Honored at D23 as Disney Legend
I loved that book so much. "To think that today I am standing here in the House of Disney Legends, I thank you all", Lee said. Iger also paid tribute to the late Carrie Fisher by saying that she was an "iconic part of the Star Wars franchise".

Trump, however, sat motionless with his arms folded, while his French counterpart smiled broadly throughout.

A marching military band performed classical pieces including a tribute to the city of Nice, struck past 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. While Macron clearly loved the little tribute to France's most famous musicians, Donald seemed to not quite pick up on what was going on. Trump's probably a purist and prefers the more electronics studio version, or perhaps the live performance from Alive 2007. Either way, he probably likes Daft Punk more than press secretary Sean Spicer does. At one point he called the group "Daft Funk" and complained that they wore helmets while performing, according to Pitchfork.
