Well, it’s working. Looking at this picture for the past 10 minutes has motivated me to take a shower, wash my clothes, book a hair cut, and never ever smoke whatever Shia LaBoeuf is smoking (I’m guessing Comet and gerbil cage liner stuffed into a pipe carved from a plank of pressure-treated wood?)
Aspiring performance artist Shia LaBoeuf is making art again and he’s still apparently still working that greasy clip-on braided rattail. According to The Guardian, Shia got together with artists Luke Turner and Nastja Säde Rönkkö to film 36 short videos of…I dunno, Shia LaBoeuf looking like a dirtbag and hollering whatever random words his brain decides to push out of his mouth, I guess. Shia’s videos were shown as part of Central Saint Martins recent fine art BA degree show. If the name Central Saint Martins sounds familiar to you, it might be because it’s where Kanye West gave a lecture after his crazy one at Oxford back in March.
One of the videos he made was a 1:04 minute motivational speech. Although to be honest, it’s more like 1:04 minutes of Shia LaBoeuf screaming in front of a green screen while looking like the long-lost love child of Oscar the Grouch and Grundgetta. Either way, you’ll want to turn down the volume on your computer before you listen.
That sound you just heard (you know, besides the ringing in your ears from hearing Shia scream “JUST DO IT“) was Tony Robbins removing his crown and FedEx-ing it to the new King of Motivational Speaking.
Because he did what he did in front of a green screen, it was only a matter of time before people would replace it with their own backgrounds. So far, nobody has slipped Screaming Shia into old episodes of Even Stevens. Come on Internet, get on that!
