Is James Franco's Version of Justin Bieber's 'Boyfriend' Better Than the Original?

James Franco made a lip-sync video of Justin Bieber's hit single 'Boyfriend', although he originally deleted it, a keen eyed viewer managed to save it and has re-uploaded it onto YouTube for us all to enjoy.

Franco dresses up as Bieber sporting that famous Bieber fringe, along with a flat-peak and a hoodie to mimic the young star. According to Franco himself, Bieber already wants to kick his ass. "I also hear that I've been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson. Hot damn, am I a lucky guy." wrote the actor in his blog on the Huffington Post.  "As for Gomez and Benson, those are Bieber's girls and I wouldn't dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my ass. Yikes!" 

We can forgive Franco for getting that wrong - Biebz and Gomez split recently amid rumours that her partying without him drove her crazy (which means that both he and Harry Styles are single for 2013). Ashley Benson does however appear in Franco's video, so although he denied their relationship back in October, that may have been a tiny lie. Bieber's and Franco's videos are largely incomparable. Franco's is fairly amusing, and Bieber's is simply uncomfortable to watch. 

As well as making his own music videos, Franco has been also been making films to- per his career- and you can check him out pretty soon in Oz the Great and Powerful, which will be out on March 8th.
