This Shia LaBeouf green screen mashup is the one to beat

This feels alarmingly plausible.

Actor, plagiarist, and alleged artist Shia LaBeouf‘s latest attempt to become human viral content—by doing a variety of performative things suggested by London art students in front of a green screen and inviting people to superimpose him into their own videos—is going rather well. Good for him!

We already rounded up some of the finest mashups, which saw LaBeouf in a bizarre Avengers cameo, a rugby match, a TED Talk, and a Nike ad. But we’d be remiss if we didn’t highlight this comparatively simple entry, in which the exasperated cameraman tries to shoo LaBeouf off his roof. 

If “Damn It Shia” doesn’t become the Internet catchphrase of the month, then I’m not really sure what the Internet is for.
