The medley included early hits likes "Digital Love" and "Harder Better Faster Stronger" as well as more recent tracks like their Grammy award winning legendary single, "Get Lucky".

It's Bastille Day today, France's national day, and United States president Donald Trump is the guest of honour.

During the parade - attended by Trump and the newly-elected French President Emanuel Macron, among other dignitaries - a military band played a medley of songs by the internationally-famed French electronic music group Daft Punk. Trump's probably a purist and prefers the more electronics studio version, or perhaps the live performance from Alive 2007.

The holiday commemorates the anniversary of Storming of the Bastille, a pivotal point in the French Revolution.

During the celebration, Macron looked like he was having a whale of a time, proudly looking upon his fellow French men and women as they bashed out the medley and moved in ideal formation in front of the crowds.

Fair enough, you're the Leader of the Free World, you maybe don't have time to keep up with the pop charts, but most people would at least try to feign an interest in what's going on directly in front of their eyes.
