James Franco New Music Video Is Exceedingly James Franco

 

Floating wigs, lightening and a beat that could have been stolen from Prince‘s recording studio in 1993 via time machine: yup, sounds about right for James Franco’s music video for “Rising.” A track on Franco’s upcoming album Turn It Up with drag performance artist Kalup Linzy, “Rising” seems to declare to the world, “I know that I can overcome all of life’s obstacles… specifically this giant tuxedo-wearing Ghost Franco that follows me around everywhere I go.” The video’s end credits indicate that Franco supplied “additional footage,” which make sense seeing as how he doesn’t actually seem to be audibly singing. Overall we feel like the whole video is just an exercise in creepy smiles and rhyming “me” with “me.” That being said, if someone is interested in making a dubstep remix? We might have a summer jam in the palm of over grinning, bow-tie wearing hands.
