It’s common knowledge that looking for a movie to watch takes longer than actually watching one. Scrolling through various ‘Best movies 2012/13/14/15’ lists, you debate whether you’d actually watch something that yielded less than 80% on Rotten Tomatoes for approximately eternity and then go to sleep without watching anything. In this search for movie perfection, seeing Tommy Wiseau’s The Room rating 35% on Rotten Tomatoes would likely prompt an adverse physical reaction.
The 2003 disaster-piece of midnight cinema is almost as hailed as it is hated, giving few fucks about traditional movie-making tropes like screen-writing or acting, it charges ahead with Tommy Wiseau directing and starring as a character caught in a bitter love triangle.
Los Angeles band, Corsica Arts Club–obviously thinking the movie was so bad it was good–gifted Wiseau what is likely his first work in years, and enlisted him to direct their video for ‘California I Follow’. The music video features production values a league beyond The Room‘s, and seemingly parodies the movie’s plot. Get a taste of the cult classic in the clip above, because we all know you’d never actually watch a movie that rate 35% on Rotten Tomatoes.
