Just when you thought he couldn’t get any more…interesting…
We’ve all seen the three-day marathon consisting of Shia LaBeouf watching everything…Shia LaBeouf, and some of us have even attempted to ‘touch his soul’, but have you heard what Shia LaBeouf is up to for his latest, mind-boggling trick?
Um…well obviously, Shia LaBeouf is spending 24-hours in an elevator at the University of Oxford, and he’s there right now, as you’re reading this…duh!

The star, accompanied by friends Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner, stepped into the elevator at 9.am this morning, where he plans to remain for an entire day. LaBeouf has labelled the stunt an “arts performance”, encouraging students to join him in the lift and entertain him with a “performance of monologues” – what a guy!
“I know it seems cheesy on paper,” he said, “but it’s only as difficult as the people who come in.”
LaBeouf’s stint will be interrupted this evening while he delivers a deep and meaningful speech to Oxford students, but don’t worry! His absence will be brief, and he’ll be right back in that lift giving us all an existential crisis before you can say…Shia LaBeouf.
In some way, aren’t we ALL Shia LaBeouf stuck in a lift, chatting away to an endless procession of strangers and morons? #EVEVATE

And guess what?
The whole thing is being streamed live on Youtube.
“Visitors will be able to join LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner inside the elevator during this time,” the Oxford Union states, “and are invited to address the artists, the debating chamber, and the Internet, so that their collective voices may form an extended, expansive and egalitarian Oxford Union address.”
It’s all just so…Shia LaBeouf!
