A po-faced President Trump saw a French military band break with Bastille Day tradition and launch into a brassy rendition of “Get Lucky” by French electro-pop superstars Daft Punk.

The 39-year-old French President Emmanuel Macron appeared amused with the sharp shift in tempo from martial music to Daft Punk, the new president broke out into a beaming smile.

The brass-and-drums band had started by playing the hymn of the southern city of Nice in a moving tribute to the victims of an attack there last year.

As they played “Nissa La Bella”, they formed into the letters of the Mediterranean city before upping the tempo with “Get Lucky” in a performance that has become an instant social media hit.
