Lindsay Lohan, James Franco Get Arty In REM “Blue” Video

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.
