Actor James Franco is no stranger to awkward videos, and his latest viral release certainly fits that bill — a parody video where he lip-syncs to Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend." The bizarre clip features Franco clad in classic Bieber gear, singing along to the pop hit, while accompanied by who Gawker identifies as actress Ashley Benson. It's all very strange, but to make matters even stranger, Franco deleted the video soon after posting. But thanks to the internet new versions have surfaced — like the one below — for your viewing pleasure. We're not quite sure what Franco was trying to accomplish with the video, but it's certainly better produced than his previous lip-syncing hit.
