Shia locked himself in the Oxford Union lift in the name of ‘art’
Shia LaBeouf punched a student during his 24 hour occupancy of an Oxford Union lift.
The actor turned performance artist stood in a lift with lots of students for an art project called #ELEVATE.
One student queued for several hours then approached the Transformers leading man with an odd request.
They said: “I’m a performance artist. Can you help me with completion of my next piece by punching me in the face?”
Shia replied: “Oh man, you want me to punch you in the face?”
Eventually the actor reluctantly agreed after being riled up by the swarm of students, but he did explain that he didn’t like the idea of punching someone he’d just met.
The other big talking point from Shia’s art piece was his game of ‘c**k or ball’, the 29-year-old was tasked with guessing whether he was gazing up a student’s penis or testicles, while the whole thing was posted on Snapchat.
“That’s testicle”, said Shia.
But he was wrong, as the student fired back: “It’s c**k.”
Shia also spoke to one student’s friend who was in hospital and spoke of his love of hippopotamuses, along with the game Hungry Hungry Hippos.
