Bastille Day, celebrated across the world on July 14, commemorates the unity of the French people during the French Revolution. You could mark the occasion by throwing a big party with your friends and loved ones which slowly descends into a violent, paranoid frenzy, but if reigns of terror aren't your thing, why not mark the day with this much more peaceful video of two acoustic guitarists playing Daft Punk?

In the clip, the UK's Showhawk Duo play analog covers of the Gallic robots' great hits – from "One More Time" to "Get Lucky." The footage was shot back in May at the Larkhall Festival, but it went viral over the weekend after being posted on Reddit.

With axes like these, who needs a guillotine?
