Basically some French dude records a band playing a couple of songs at random places around Paris and other cities. Sometimes they'll play a song in the streets, on the metro, in somebody's apartment, in an elevator. All kinds of interesting things happen during the videos too. It's pretty wild.
I've been obsessed with these since I came across them yesterday. Here are two of my favourites:
Yeasayer doing a great rendition 2080 at some dude's apartment after a show:
Menomena doing Wet and Rusting in the courtyard of apartment buildings while two little kids dance:
"It's raining in Vancouver, but I don't give a fuck, because I'm far from home tonight."

I don't know if it has been mentioned before, but Vincent Moon did a cinema verite style doc on the National a couple years ago. They used to have a lot of live vids made by him on their site back when Alligator came out.
