R.E.M. – “That Someone Is You” Video (Dir. James Franco)

Before the band broke up, R.E.M. somehow ended up working with James Franco on two never-released videos from their final studio album Collapse Into Now. A couple of weeks ago, we saw Franco’s “Blue” video, which featured Lindsay Lohan and a whole lot of distinctly Californian ennui. And now here’s Franco’s decidedly different video for “That Someone Is You.” In this one, Franco himself stars, and he appears to be practicing for a community-theater production of Grease. The lead actress has her head hidden by a giant superimposed cat-head. None of it makes any sense, and you can watch it below.
