Shia LaBeouf goes full frontal in the new short film for Icelandic band Sigur Rs

Jun. 18, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Not many bands are as cinematic as Icelandic musicians Sigur Rós. Their music has been featured in movies like VANILLA SKY and CHILDREN OF MEN to great effect.

Shia LaBeouf is a child actor turned movie star who has headlined the TRANSFORMERS trilogy and played Indiana Jones' son.

Combine those two into an avant-garde short film from director Alma Har’el (wife of SAFE director Boaz Yakin) and you get a very interesting and haunting short film.

Oh, and Shia goes full frontal. Did I forget that part?

Sigur Rós' new album, Valtari, was released to acclaim recently. They put out a challenge to directors to take a $10,000 budget and run with it to create a video for every song on the album. Har’el’s video for “Fjögur Píanó” succeeds in every possible way.

The video, Har’el suggests, “is about addiction to drugs, or sex, or anything–and how you get stuck in a cycle.” And the dead butterflies festooning the bedroom that imprisons the couple? The director says they symbolize “very beautiful things that die very fast,” the experiences or emotions that couple share ad nauseam. “For me, it’s about not knowing how to get out of something without causing pain to somebody else,” Har’el says. “For other people it might be about candy and fish. I’m down with that.”

Check out the video below. Warning: it is very NSFW.

What do you think of the video? What do you think of Shia's La Beouf? (Sorry, I had to do it!)

Extra Tidbit: Shia also directed the music video for Marilyn Manson's "Born Villian." It echoes Alejandro Jodorowsky. Check it out if you can! Also NSFW!

I like how worked up some people get about a flaccid penis.

i absolutely love Sigur Ros, has been my favorite band for many many years now. video is well done and all but not the emotions that a Sigur Ros song should display (at least for me).

That was an extremely gorgeous...

...song. And beautifully-shot too. I can also see the conspiracy theorists going nuts (heh) about this too: the butterfly (monarch programming!), the third eye on the forehead of the figure in the drawing (all-seeing eye!) and the broken mirrors (Wizard of OZ programming!)

I think Shia's a guy with a lot of potential as an actor. I think it's sadly been wasted so far, but some of the things he's done lately--like this--give me hope.

Never listened to much Sigur Ros. If this is any indication, maybe I should start?

I don't think you've been paying attention so far, then. It's all there, in his mannerisms, in his eyes, in his expressions.

So what that he is naked

I have been a fan of Sigur Ros for a decade, now. So what if we see Shia naked. He has a penis, big deal. Girls have vaginas, so what. The video was made for art, so what. And for the men that want to make fun of 'his size' he is limp, idiots....not hard...

Beautiful...

That was really well done, I am in no way a fan of artsy stuff but I actually liked it. Oh, and he is as big as my pinky, if I were him and had that money and a tiny dick, I would get implants. That's gotta be disappointing for the ladies when they first see it.

Awesome song (and album), though the video starts to veer into pompous, look, it's art!!! territory, but manages to rebound half way through. Shia's intensity was great, where's that side of him been? He needs to stop the popcorn flicks and do roles more like A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.
