The curious motivational video of Shia LaBeouf that has been plastered all over the internet in recent months is kind of hilarious. The fact that the footage was shot against a green screen has made it really easy for people to remix it in all sorts of hilarious ways.
I’m going to skip the part where I speculate about the original purpose of the footage (or whether it was some viral scheme from the beginning) and just say this:
I actually find it pretty motivating.
I’m not sure if it’s the humor, the intensity, the strangeness, or a combination thereof, but I actually find myself remembering this whenever I feel like I should do something, but not right now. On a few different occasions I’ve actually been able to follow through on some ideas after remembering this silly video. It’s like my lazy thoughts are interru— YESTERDAY YOU SAID TOMORROW, JUST DO IT!!!
