Watch: Shia LaBeouf Cameos In Gay Men’s Chorus Shia LaBeouf Song

1

Actor and director Shia LaBeouf has appeared in a video with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, parodying himself.

The chorus teamed up with singer and songwriter Rob Cantor, the man behind the online hit Shia LaBeouf, to record a video for the song which tells the story of the actor as a cannibal and features lines such as ‘Running for your life (from Shia LaBeouf), He’s brandishing a knife (it’s Shia LaBeouf)’.

The Transformers star makes an appearance at the end of video, applauding cheerfully. Cantor told Indiewire how he connected with the real Shia LaBeouf and got him to appear in the video.

‘’I wrote an email to Shia. I explained that I was a big fan, I pitched the video concept, and I invited him to participate. I found his manager’s email address online, and I sent my message off, never expecting to hear back.

Three days later, much to my delight, a reply! And more exciting still, it was a yes! I had pitched a few different ideas as to how Shia might appear in the video, and “sole audience member revealed at the end” was one of them. It was his idea to turn it into a Citizen Kane nod.’’
