Now that Selena Gomez has announced she’s taking a bit of a break from recording to focus on acting, the door is open for her Spring Breakers costar James Franco to hire himself for yet another job. The Oscar nominee recently released a candid car-jam video that proves he’s just as addicted to Gomez’s candy-coated hit “Love You Like a Love Song” as the rest of us.

From Franco’s soul-penetrating stare to his emotive… ummm… gestures, not to mention the cornrows for his Breakers character, I’m not sure whether to be amused, creeped out, impressed, or all of the above. I am sure, however, that this is one viral video on which you’ll keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat.

What do you think, PopWatchers? Should Franco quit his 47 day jobs and launch a music career? Has he regained his footing over brother Dave to once again be the coolest Franco?
