A French military band performing in the Bastille Day parade in Paris on Friday played music by French music group Daft Punk.

President Donald Trump joined French President Emmanuel Macron on the viewing stand for the military parade led by soldiers from the U.S. Army's 1st Infantry Division.

A French military band marched in front of the presidents and other dignitaries while playing the French electronic duo's music, including a portion of the hit song "Get Lucky" instead of a typical military march.

Macron appeared to be quite amused by the performance while Trump did not give much reaction. Dignitaries in uniforms and civilians alike began clapping along with the songs.

The two members of Daft Punk, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, are known for always wearing costumes, including being dressed as robots and often collaborate with other artists.
