James Franco and Lindsay Lohan have teamed up for an REM music video for Blue that’s just too arty to handle.
Evocative of The Canyons (oh my God, did I just write that?!), the Franco-directed video (which you can watch below) mixes location shots of Los Angeles with clips of Lindsay Lohan posing for photo shoots — at one point wearing trademark Terry Richardson glasses — and even James Franco posing in drag.
And what "arty" video by these two would be complete with a lot of the camera fading-in and fading-out?
NME reports that James Franco was hired by REM to direct two music videos off their latest album Collapse Into Now: this one for Blue and another forthcoming video for That Something Is You.
