James Franco has taken a twisted turn in his career with the recently released music video “Sword Swallower”, for his band Daddy. It was directed by Franco and filmed at the historically sexualized Chateau Marmont’s Bungalow 2. This VHS quality clip contains  just about every gritty vice; knives, masks, dildos,and pornography.

The single “Sword Swallower” is remixed in the video by  Prince Rama, the Brooklyn-based psychedelic EDM band of sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson. Franco’s bandmate Tim O’Keefe stated, “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.”

 

This hallucinatory video was inspired by the notoriously scandalous location in which it takes place. “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 explained in a statement. “Some hippies threw a party and things got wild.”
