Shia LaBeouf Delivers The Most Intense Motivational Speech Of All Time
May 30, 2015
This clip is one snippet from a larger set of 30-second introductions for 36 short film projects by students at Central Saint Martins, one of the U.K.'s best universities for the arts. The full video is nearly 30 minutes long and has the actor doing all kinds of weird things in accordance to the direction/requests he received from the students.

While this is the original clip, there are several variations to be found online, including this pep talk being given at a TED conference and as part of a Nike ad.
Actor Shia LaBeouf has made a lot of headlines for a lot of wrong reasons in recent times. The 28-year-old has seen his share of troubles with the law and has had some bizarre behavior such as showing up to a film premiere with a paper bag over his head reading "I Am Not Famous Anymore." One explanation for his eccentric behavior as of late is his ongoing collaboration with British artist Luke Turner and Finnish artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö. This video, which shows him delivering a very intense motivational speech in front of a green screen is one of the results of that collaboration.
