Watch James Franco get punched in the face -- VIDEO

So technically, this video is a promo for James Franco’s upcoming Comedy Central Roast, which airs Sept. 2. But we prefer to think that whoever’s behind that boxing glove (and behind the camera) has a deeper reason for wanting to clock The Francinator — because Lord knows there are enough people dying to do just that.

Maybe it’s the ghost of James Dean. Maybe it’s a struggling MFA grad burning with resentment over Palo Alto. Maybe it’s that angry NYU professor who sued Franco last fall. Maybe it’s Anne Hathaway.

Regardless, we’ve got to give the good people at Comedy Central a round of applause for making a pretty perfect commercial. And then we’ve got to take a moment to ponder how we really feel about James Franco… because between Spring Breakers, This Is the End, and the following clip, it’s becoming a lot harder to hold a grudge against the guy. Damnit, James!

Thank goodness the network made a GIF already.
