In an experiment seemingly inspired in equal measure by Marina Abramović and Subservient Chicken, James Franco obeyed the commands of random Internet users Saturday afternoon, smearing on makeup, licking a sock puppet and spraying himself with whipped cream just because some nice folks asked him to.

For almost 45 minutes, Franco followed the instructions of selected out-hangers in the #MakeJamesDo Google hangout, a performance set up by Paper magazine as part of their ongoing effort to "Break the Internet" with huge asses.

The viewers' requests were predictably bizarre, and left Franco looking pretty jacked up, as this Instagram photo shows:

As of press time Saturday, the Internet remained disappointingly unbroken.
