Savior to the performance art world Shia LaBeouf wants as many people as possible to get a taste of his (f)art. Shia performed his first piece, #IAMSORRY, in Los Angeles and he recently busted out his second piece, #ALLMYMOVIES, in NYC. Shia LaBeef has now taken his act to England where he and his partners in performance artistry, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, are talking to the public in a piece they’re calling #TOUCHMYSOUL. If you read that as #TOUCHMYHOLE, you read it correctly, because that’s the only way to read it. They also missed out on an opportunity to call their art piece #HOTLINEBEEF.
Shia and his partners have set up their own call center at FACT Gallery in Liverpool and for the next four days, they will be talking to the people during business hours. The number is +44/0-151-808-0771. Or you can just call 1-900-H-I-G-H-A-R-T. They’re also live streaming the calls, but it doesn’t seem to be working right now.
I’m assuming that everyone’s calling Shia to either tell him to refund the money they spent on seeing Transformers: Dark of the Moon or they’re calling to phone fuck with him. If you’re calling him to do the latter, you don’t need to ask him what he’s wearing. As you can see from the picture of them in action, LaDouche is wearing the outfit your mom wears to Zumba class.
All of us who have done telemarketing and those of you who are currently telemarketers are rolling our eyes in unison at this. When we made calls all day, we didn’t call it art. We called it torture.
