Shia LaBeouf and Denna Thomsen star in this NSFW video for Sigur Rós’ video for Fjögur Píanó. NSFW because 50 seconds into it, you see Shia LaBeouf’s penis. That and Denna Thomsen has her tits hanging out the whole time.
A little background about this. Sigur Rós had asked about 12 filmmakers to shoot a video for any song off their new album Valtari inspired by the music. Each director was given $10,000 and no instructions. Basically, freedom to do whatever they wanted.
This video by Alma Har’el did just that. It’s a seven-minute video with nudity, glowing lollipops, butterflies and Shia LaBeouf naked dancing.
The video, Har’el suggests, “is about addiction to drugs, or sex, or anything–and how you get stuck in a cycle.” And the dead butterflies festooning the bedroom that imprisons the couple? The director says they symbolize “very beautiful things that die very fast,” the experiences or emotions that couple share ad nauseam. “For me, it’s about not knowing how to get out of something without causing pain to somebody else,” Har’el says. “For other people it might be about candy and fish. I’m down with that.” WSJ
It’s like a really artsy anti-drug/addiction PSA. So artsy in fact that I think my head just sprouted a beret and I grew a handlebar mustache.
