Video: At a Bastille Day event on Friday, the French army marching band did something unusual and amazing: They played electronic music unplugged. And not just any electronic music, either. The horns and drums and woodwinds performed a stunning medley of Daft Punk’s greatest hits. Donald Trump apparently did not enjoy it.

Do you know who looks like he loved the celebration of French culture, though? French president Emmanuel Macron, and pretty much everyone else at the event (except maybe Melania Trump).
The medley itself features the legendary French electronic duo’s mega hits such as “One More Time”, “Get Lucky”, “Digital Love” and “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”. Daft Punk fans will quickly realise that this medley is quite similar to the Daft Punk tribute that Pentatonix released in 2014.
Unlike an a cappella group, the French army marching band actually marched, sometimes spelling out the names of French cities. To capture the effect, it looks like a news agency or the French government used a drone. Why they decided to make the images look like a drone attack is either a bad choice or a curious dig at the United States military.
Who knows why Trump did his frowny face throughout the whole performance. Maybe he isn’t having fun in Paris, where he can’t buy a proper Quarter Pounder with cheese. Maybe he doesn’t like to celebrate other countries’ holidays or cultural achievements, since the act clearly doesn’t put America first. Maybe he just hates Daft Punk. Sad!
Just look at Trump’s face:
Now look at Macron’s:
