I keep hearing about this Geocities thing. Maybe some day I will try it.

Trump didn't get the joke

I didn't get the joke either.

Great performance, though.

That is just your projection.

I just happen to understand French humour. It's more subtle than the, perhaps more familiar to you, Germanic "saxonklopfen ya ya!" variety.

I admire your humility Yoda. It must be hard to combine with so many talents.

'Daft Punk' is just a single name for a very popular music group in France. Its name doesn't mean anything beyond that, a cool name.

Like nobody is going to identify 'The Beatles' with crawling insects.

The 'joke' is just the contrast between the seriousness and pomp of the whole military defilé and this musical conclusion. It is self-relativism of the French military.

I don't think it was especially impressive for an American president, because the US has a strong tradition of spectacular marching bands itself, compared to which this one was rather modest.

Trump really got into the black marching band performance at his inauguration.

And it was more impressively choreographed and overall much more energetic than this French performance.

I do love to hear marching band arrangements of popular music, though.
