French President Emmanuel Macron lost a bet so he had to host a grindcore band at the presidential palace.

And the band is called Ultra Vomit.

Hold on. Back up.

This concert is the result of a bet Macron made with McFly and Carlito back in February. The wager was that if the duo could get 10 million views for their YouTube video on social distancing, masks, and hand-washing, they’d be allowed to film an episode of their comedy series in the presidential palace. They got their 10 million, so Macron had to settle up.

The 36-minute video shows McFly and Carlito wandering through the building with the president until they reached a courtyard with three chairs. Once they were seated, grindcore band Ultra Vomit performed a version of a French lullaby called “A Green Mouse” (“Une souris verte”).

Love it.
