Casey Abrams

Is Now a Dirty, Singing

Hippie Person

So, there we were ... giving one of our awesome TMZ Hollywood Tours this week ... when we spotted this dirty, hippie-looking dude playing a guitar on the side of the road with a giant stuffed gorilla.

And then we realized ... the beatnik was former "American Idol" finalist Casey Abrams.

The whole encounter was kinda strange ... a shoe-less Casey scatted his way through a song ... and then laid down on the ground with his giant blue stuffed animal, while waving to the people on the bus (totally nice guy).

We're guessing Casey is pulling the stunt to promote something ... then again, maybe he really did go full Joaquin Phoenix.

Either way, check out the video -- kinda crazy.

Guaranteed: KK post coming in next two hours. TMZ has to post zkartrashian posts every certain number of hours or the website will crash.

Considering Joaquin's stunt was actually a stunt... saying he's pulling a Joaquin is the exactly same when you say - "We're guessing Casey is pulling the stunt to promote something ... then again, maybe he really did go full Joaquin Phoenix."

He shows a little talent, and true to the form of most of Hollywood's persona's - he ran when he saw the PaP's....hahahaha

Almost feel sorry for the dude, unless this is a prank. He has a nice voice and a cool style, but if this is where his talent has lead him, then that's on him. I know he could have done better.
