“California I Follow” does a good job of living up to its name with soft and melodic guitar riffs, and the relaxed yet mournful singing, sit comfortably in a grand tradition of California rock. But as Corsica Arts Club set about filming a video for the single, they kept running into cliché proposals: beaches, palm tress, girls in bikinis. They were unimpressed, songwriter and guitarist Arash Parsee tells EW. Luckily, a different idea arrived when the band passed a theater marquee advertisement for a screening of The Room, featuring an in-person appearance from the enigmatic director. Corsica Arts Club went to the screening, and approached Wiseau about directing their video. Though Wiseau was busy shooting his sitcom The Neighbors and traveling the country for screenings of The Room, he was game to try something new. The band got him a copy of their self-titled debut EP, and he was impressed.
“I like the music because it’s just 100 percent correct,” Wiseau says. “The guys are dead serious. I see their professional approach from the beginning. That’s what I like.”
