It features all the elements one could hope for in an R.E.M. video: Moody music by the band, including Michael Stipe, with an assist from Patti Smith on vocals.

Directorial flourishes by ... James Franco?

And cameo appearances from ... Lindsay Lohan and Franco in drag. Of course.

The music video is sort of pretentious but also sort of hypnotic. And it may make you feel nostalgic for the days when R.E.M. made music videos in which people sat in traffic.
