L'Auberge Espagnole...ou Campus Saint-Jean, La Pocatière

Vidéo de Daft Punk sur l'écran à la Pocatière

Daft Punk's "Aerodynamic" will forever remind me of my time spent in La Pocatière, Quebec; a small town about 100 km from Quebec City. I think the second week we were there we watched this movie called L'Auberge Espagnole. This film featured a bunch of young adults from different parts of the world living in an apartment together.
This movie reminded me of our situation in La Pocatière; bunch of young adults from all over Canada (ok so maybe it wasn't as culturally diverse) thrown into dormitories, trying to understand each other and a different language. The best way to bond in this small town was to go to Café St-Louis which was a fairly good club for the size of the town.
This scene in L'Auberge Espagnole totally resembled us in La Pocatière. Intoxicated, listening to Daft Punk, trying to make the most of our time with each other.

Note: This scene is much more epic in the actual movie

But when I was in La Pocatière, Daft Punk seemed to be our soundtrack because they don't usually have words (we were prohibited from listening to music with English lyrics) and most importantly, it made us move.
