Spring Breakers James Franco

If you weren't already aware amidst his scores of other side projects, James Franco has formed a musical side project, entitled Daddy, with his fellow Rhode Island School of Design alumnus Tim O'Keefe. Having only been around a year, they've nonetheless still put out two Motown-inflected EPs -- to the point where remixes are being made -- and now the actor has placed a notable influence of his at the center of his duo's latest music video.

Directed by Franco as well, the six-minute clip for "Love in the Old Days (Tim James 1999 Remix)," aims for atmosphere and mystery, but most significantly, it features experimental filmmaker Kenneth Anger as a theremin-playing occult priest. If that wasn't enough, the “Fireworks” and “Scorpio Rising” director also presides over a marriage between two naked lovebirds, before letting them surge with the audience of animal mask-wearing attendees for a post-ceremony rave.

You won't find much else in the NSFW six-minute clip, but at least it gave Franco the opportunity to collaborate with one of his idols. The actor dedicated his first short film while taking classes at NYU to Anger, and in a statement for the music video, he explains his casting choice: "I wanted to do two marriages and call it 'The Marriage of Heaven and Hell after Blake.' I could think of no one better to preside over the marriage of Hell than Anger. He is a force. A fusion of art, pop-culture, magik and sex. He is the voyeur-king."

Check the end result out below. And as an added bonus, the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin recently asked Franco to deliver a “No Talking” PSA, which you can also check out. [Movieline]
