James Franco directed a psychedelic, NSFW video for the Prince Rama remix of his band Daddy’s song “I’m a Sword Swallower”

James Franco conjures a hedonistic Hollywood party with his band Daddy's psychedelic video for "I'm a Sword Swallower." The NSFW, old VHS-quality clip is a jumble of sex, knives, photography and Guy Fawkes masks – soundtracked by brooding bass and pounding drums, remixed by Prince Rama.

"Everything gets wild at the Chateau Marmont. Bungalow 2, where they rehearsed Rebel Without a Cause in the 50s and Nicholas Ray had his affair with young Natalie Wood," Franco said of the video in a statement. "Some hippies threw a party and things got wild."

Franco's bandmate Tim O'Keefe added, "Prince Rama's remix creates the perfect soundtrack for our short film that explores gender, power play, and Hollywood lore in a cinematic psychedelic dream. Prince Rama and Daddy are a match made in heaven."

Daddy released their debut LP, Let Me Get What I Want, in March. The British New Wave-inspired album features the Smiths' original bassist, Andy Rourke is available in traditional formats and on limited-edition dark pink vinyl.

Franco and O'Keefe first started making music as Daddy after meeting at the Rhode Island School of Design's Digital and Media MFA program. In 2012 and 2013, the duo released their first EPs, one of which remains available to stream on Soundcloud
