WATCH: Shia LaBeouf Hits Fan in the Face as Part of Performance Art Project

Shia LaBeouf Spends 24HRS in an Elevator
The actor turned performance artist has a new project going down…and up.

During a ride in an elevator, Shia LaBeouf hit a fan while in an elevator—all in the name of art.

This took place during LaBeouf’s 24-hour stay in an elevator at Oxford University for his art piece with collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner called #ELEVATE.

The fan approached Shia and asked, “Can you help me with the completion of my next piece by punching me in the face?”

At first, LaBeouf is understandably hesitant. However, after several friendly negotiations, Shia managed to get the blow downgraded to a slap.

Eventually, the Hollywood actor complied and the sound of Shia slapping his new acquaintance can be heard in the video.
