If you want to simultaneously potty train and scare the living s**t out of your toddler, there's a James Franco video for that. (Of course there is.) Yesterday, a video surfaced of the actor/professor/filmmaker/poet screaming seemingly nonsensical things like, "Just do it! Just poo it!" and "All those other little kids are pooping in their pants!"

The clip, which is a parody of the video Shia LaBeouf filmed for Central Saint Martins' graduate show, sees Franco popping veins in grey boxer briefs and an Adidas tee. We may never understand why it exists because, well, James Franco is a celestial being who does what he wants when he wants and doesn't have to have a reason. Whether or not it beats out the other Shia LaBeouf parodies circulating on the internet...that's for you to decide.
