The end of the electro duo Daft Punk, indicated by a video, causes regret on a political level in France – but in a humorous way. “Even separated, Daft Punk will remain in the heart of the Department of Defense,” the official Twitter account said. The ministry also posted a video of the military parade on France’s national holiday in 2017. At that time, the military band surprised with music by Daft Punk.
Even separated, the Daft Punk will remain in the heart of the Ministry of the Armed Forces.
Remember: the #14Juillet 2017, the joint marching band offered a medley of their titles at the end of the parade! 👋❤️ pic.twitter.com/Iz8LDrMK42

While French President Emmanuel Macron rocked to the beat at the time, the then invited US President Donald Trump was rather astonished. “Thank you for making France shine,” wrote the Foreign Ministry on Twitter and posted a photo of the band with the hashtag DaftPunkForever.
“Behind every helmet there is a calling”
The police and fire brigade also said goodbye to the duo lovingly. “Thank you Daft Punk for setting the dance floor on fire and remember to return our helmets,” wrote the Paris Fire Brigade. The Police Nationale published a photo with employees wearing helmets and wrote: “Behind every helmet there is a calling.”
The Gendarmerie Nationale also recalled the performance of the military band on July 14th on Twitter.
