Shia LeBeouf Goes Full Frontal in Sigur Rós Video
Nothing is left to the imagination, at least apropos of Shia LaBeouf’s private bits, in Sigur Rós’ new video for “Fjögur Píanó”. The heady 7-minute film shot by Israeli director, Alma Har’el, features LaBeouf (and yes, in one scene his penis as well), dancer/actress Denna Thomsen, interpretive dance, butterflies, and plenty of metaphor in the guise of hallucinogenic sequences.

Evidently, the Icelandic group asked twelve filmmakers (Har’el included) to chose a song from their latest album. Armed with $10,000, and carte blanche to create a film as they saw fit, each of the twelve directors produced something utterly different.

“The things you can’t say in words are best said in dance,” Har’el told The Wall Street Journal.

The video “is about addiction to drugs, or sex, or anything–and how you get stuck in a cycle,” she elaborated.

“For me, it’s about not knowing how to get out of something without causing pain to somebody else. For other people it might be about candy and fish. I’m down with that,” Har’el continued.

Regarding “le buff” scenes of LaBeouf and Thomsen, she says they were a spontaneous decision of the actors.

“That’s the difference between working within a corporate system and something that artistically takes you places you wouldn’t expect. To me, it’s erotic, but it’s not selling anything.”

Take a gander below at Har’el’s video. Be forewarned that there are naked bits ergo use discretion.
