Shia LaBeouf's Insane Motivational Speech Gets The Parodies He Hoped For
Shia LaBeouf, ex-child actor and professional crazy person, put out a "motivational" video where he flexes his superior musculature and yells at you to "JUST DO IT!"
The original is somehow 30 minutes long, but the Internet paid special attention to one particular section.
Here it is, in all its terrifying glory.
Now, I think Shia probably has to be in on the joke here, but my satire-radar is on the fritz because honestly, I’m just scared. He’s saying encouraging things, but all I see is my dad informing me telling jokes about your penis isn’t a respectable way to make a living.
Anyway, I think he's self-aware. Why else would this be in front of a green screen? I have to say this is a great PR move for the young actor who has become more pretentious than James Franco wearing a beret while reading a French newspaper.
Of course, you put Shia LaBeouf in front of a green screen, and the Internet can't help itself. As you'd expect, amazing parodies of the speech have been popping up all over the place.
This one honestly isn't so far from the realm of possibility.
I'd like him to deliver this speech to me when I'm sitting on the toilet in the morning. It would speed things up.
I like TED Talks because the speakers are so informed. I wish I knew as much about "IT" as Shia does.
Shia LaBeouf received an honorary degree from the Samuel L. Jackson Institute, where he majored in "Yelling Studies."
This one had to happen.
Word just came in, Nike is changing its slogan. A possible replacement: "Little kids sure make great sneaks!"
It's important to get yourself psyched up before a big game! But not this psyched up.
The only time you need to be this hyped is if you are about to run through a pack of zombies with a chainsaw.
Shia shares a lot with Anakin. He was cute as a kid, horrible in his 20s and he'll probably soon fall into a lava pit while doing an art installation called "How Hot I Am."
Listen to Yoda, Shia. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. Suffering leads to the dark side.
