A dramatic array of hipster emotion is sought out in the new R.E.M. music video in which James Franco directs Lindsay Lohan in 'Blue.' The track comes from the band's 15th and final album which was released last year. The band released the new music video over the weekend with a shocking amount of Lindsay Lohan extras. James Franco included a series of famous cameos from Agyness Deyn, Lindsay Lohan and himself in drag from his shoot with Terry Richardson for Candy magazine.

The view of the Los Angeles skyline, downtown area and historical landmarks infuses some hipster aesthetic into the mix. The vintage appeal to the music video mixed with blotchy cuts and famous figures makes this short film an interesting portray of the Hollywood scene.
