Shia LaBeouf Hootsuite parody video is here
Last week, Shia LaBeouf released a 30-minute video where he acted out directions from film students in front of a green screen. The internet took advantage of the footage and immediately started creating memes: Clips of LaBeouf shouting things like, “Do it! Just do it!” were added to scenes from famous movies, while James Franco made his own parody video where he repeatedly shouted, “Just poo it!” But out of all the parodies, Hootsuite’s might take the cake.
The social media company released a video Friday featuring Hootsuite community manager Candice Charleton “chatting” with LaBeouf via video chat. She asks him questions like, “How do you personally manage your social media activity, day to day?” and “How do you manage to keep up with all those fans?” In the beginning, his answers (ripped from the original 30-minute video) mostly make sense—but as the video goes on, things get more absurd.
At one point, his plain background transforms into an ocean—”okay, it looks like he’s underwater,” Charleston says, confused—and at another, his feet replace his face. Watch the whole (completely ridiculous) chat below.
