What Are the Rest of Us Doing With Our Lives?!

What—did you think James Franco wasn't going to take time off from doing every single other thing ever, all of them, ALL OF THE THINGS, to direct a short film (which is definitely a commercial, but fancier) for shoe designer Stuart Weitzman? You're so weird.

Of course he is.
Actor James Franco has taken another twist in his unconventional career — directing a short film for shoe designer Stuart Weitzman.

Four vignettes, which will debut on the brand's Facebook page, follow model Petra Nemcova as she takes what the company describes as "a midnight fantasy stroll."

The inspiration came from the 1988 underground club-scene movie "Mondo New York," and Nemcova struts to an updated version of the Patsy Cline song, "Walking After Midnight."
The entire film won't be available until Oct. 26, but here is the first installment, because James Franco.

Video: Petra Nemcova, a tall, thin, white, young woman, walks down an urban sidewalk at night, wearing hot shoes. She walks into a gallery. She runs. Cuts of her feet, upper body, inside, outside, walking, running are spliced together. The end.

Genius. Give it all the CLIOs. Or at least let James Franco host the CLIOs with Anne Hathaway. That's the least we can do for James Franco AS A SOCIETY.
